Sniff Refferer

Is there a way to customize a homepage view using javascript to tell you who the reffer is and show a custom view of the page (with AJAX or Flash) when a certain referer is detected?  Are there any standard AJAX frameworks that do this?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

Javascript Code

if((/^https?\:\/\/(www\.)?example\.com/).test(document.referrer)){
    location.href="anotherpage.html";

I would go along and agree with what was mentioned on that page, which is to use htaccess if you are on an apache server.  If you have access to a server side programming language like PHP, ASP, Coldfusion... you can easily complete the task that way.
