Use two buttons for my form.

I have a web-page with two <select> lists. I would like an extra button for the first <select> that sends data to some other page. It already has a (hidden) submit button as you will see in the code. This is in Perl.

print "<form action=that.pl method=post>"
print "<select size=6 id=a name=sel2 onchange=\"if(this.selectedIndex != -1) submit();\">";
foreach(@ook)
{
print "<option>";
print;
}
print "</select><br>";

#print "<input type=submit id=gv2 value=Go>";
print "</form></td><td align=center>-</td><td>";
print "<form action=this.pl method=post><select name=trig_list size=6>";
foreach(@eek)
{
      print "<option>";
      print;
}
print "</select><br><input type=submit value=\"<<\"></form>";

Try this:

<script>
function dosubmit(b)
{
 if (b==1)
 {document.f1.action='this.pl';}
else
 {document.f1.action='that.pl';}
document.f1.submit();
}
Remember to name the form f1.  The link is: javascript:void(dosubmit(1))
