Redirection in PHP

Hi, I am setting up a login screen.  If my user enters the correct id and password, I want them to go to say - mainPage.htm, if they enter the wrong info, then I want them to go to badAnswer.htm.  I usually work with ASP and it has a redirection function that allows me to input the pages I want to go to and when that function line is encounter - the user is immediately take to the listed page.  Does php have some type of redirection function, if so, how does it work and how can I implement it in my site?

Thank you in advance.

I can user the header function.  It causes problems if something is above this info.  But what I did figure out:
echo "<script>document.location.href='http://127.0.0.1/dashboard/CPLindex.htm';</script>";

I just put the javascript refernce in php's echo command.  it worked.  THanks for your help though.
