Checking to see if a referring url/link matches

I know I've used something like this in the past, can't put my finger
on it, tho...
I need to find out the method/keyword for checking to see if a user is
clicking into one webpage from a certain other webpage or url:

hypothetical example:
<%if referringurl = "http://www.yahoo.com" then

'do a function or task

end if%>

What would be the keyword or method/function for "referringurl" in the
above example?

Thanks

Forgot to add, to use the function, you'd simply do;

<%
If CheckReferer(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER "),
"http://www.yourdomain.com") Then
Response.Write "Yipee, they match"
Else
Response.Write "Oh dear, they don't match"
End If
%>

Wouldn't that be the same as:
Function CheckReferer(sWhat, sMatch)
CheckReferer = (sWhat = sMatch)
End Function
