You may want to send as a hidden parameter for the cgi where was it called from.
Now, your output of the CGO may be a redirection to that address.

I don't if this is best way but with cgi i have used location header to go back to form page. Something like that:


# Do Your job here
print "Location: http://localhost/formpage.html\n\n";
