How do I get/read the url from the address filed in web browser

My perl file is today shown/running "inside" a web page. My task is to redirect the user to a different web page depending on which web page thta is "holding" my perl file. Unfortunately I can't work out how to obtain the url string from the web page. I have successed with the same thing using javascript which is something like:

var url = parent.window.location;
how do I do this in perl?
Please help!
