I have many different html pages that use a common cgi script for form
processing and want to determine the name of the webpage.
Not that this has anything to do with python...but you're
interested in the standard "referrer"/"referer" field in your
request headers. Note that this field IS OPTIONAL. Firefox
makes it easy to keep the referrer private, so it's never sent.
