    Hi Everyone

    I'll make this short and sweet. I'm looking for some sort of function or variable in PHP that will allow me to return to the referring page, if I put it into an <a href> tag. I can think of one way of coding around the problem, but I would prefer to do it properly. I'm just curious: Is there such a thing as $REFERRER_URL variable or am I just imagining things? If there is, how would I go about using it?

    Thanks for your help,
    Warren Rohner

    Note the spelling above is correct (no double r)
