I need a redirecting script that redirects to one of various .cgi scripts (named like, or 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="">

<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="">
