There are (at least) two ways - you probably want the second one.
If not, then tell what you are trying to do and we'll figure it out.
1) In the controller you can return $self->redirect($new_url)
instead of return OK, $self->evaluate_template("template"). You
can't do that from the templates (it wouldn't be hard to do; we've
just never needed it.
2) If Combust::Redirect is enabled, as it is for most of the sites
and can be for the rest, then you can setup redirects in
the .htredirects file - there's an example on the www site:http://svn.perl.org/perl.org/docs/live/www/.htredirects
The syntax is
regexp target_url options
options can be "perm", "temp" or "intern" (or shortened or longer
version of that).
internal gives an internal redirect (not seen by the user)
permanent a 301 response
temporary (the default) a 302 response.
