Detecting incoming URL

Example: I'm on the file category.php where there is a link to article.php. Ofcourse when the uers clicks on the link is redirecting to article.php. The question is: What code I need to add in article.php to capture the incoming url (in this case category.php)?
$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']  is giving article.php and not category.php

Fantastic. Actually I didn't used session, but rather I stored it in a variable eg:
$inboundurl = $_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"];
and works fine.
