Keeping track of the links that user visited

How can I create
                      links to the sites that the user has visted from ny site?

                      Do I have to use cookies of some kind to keep track of users on my
                      site?  

                      Is this possible by using perl reg. exp.?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

for 1 point!

You cant't tell where someone went after your site.

Use the logs or one of the many counters/loggers to determine who has been to your site.

A regular expression is a way of matching parts of a string.  So the third part of the question makes no sense.

within your site is not a problem, just look at the server logs, or if not available from your isp, put a link to one of the many web counters on your pages.
