I need a redirecting script that redirects to one of various .cgi scripts (named like http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/first.cgi, or http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/ second.cgi, etc...) depending on the customer id value contained in the form below which will be posted to the script. Below is the posted form.....

<form method="POST" action=" http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/redirect.cgi">

<input type="hidden" name="INVOICE" value="1038">

<input type="hidden" name="DESCRIPTION" value="">

<input type="hidden" name="AMOUNT" value="$1.00">

<input type="hidden" name="CUSTID" value="thirtyrec">

<input type="hidden" name="TYPE" value="NA">

<input type="hidden" name="METHOD" value="MasterCard">

<input type="hidden" name="NAME" value="vern keller">

<input type="hidden" name="ADDRESS" value=" fisher rd">

<input type="hidden" name="CITY" value="somecity">

<input type="hidden" name="STATE" value="ca">

<input type="hidden" name="ZIP" value="12345">

<input type="hidden" name="COUNTRY" value="USA">

<input type="hidden" name="PHONE" value="541-123-4567">

<input type="hidden" name="FAX" value="none">

<input type="hidden" name="EMAIL" value="mymail@mydomain.com">

<input type="submit" value="Continue">
