avoid post resubmit on refresh

I've a form wich point to itself in order to check if the compulsory values
are filled. If they are, then I send an email.

Now, I've seen that if you refresh the form (once the email is sent), then
the email is sent again. How to clear the POST values ? I won't the form to
be submitted again. Once the email is sent, then the POST variables should
be blank.

Post the form to a php-only script with all the logic, from there use
header() to go back to the form.

I HATE this manner. That means that for every page where there is a form,
I've to create an other with the logic. It's already quite difficult to get
a low number of page, but adding every time a new one will kill me (I've
about 80 php pages on my site).

Any other way ?

POST to the same page.

If the result is unsucsessful, show the errors, and allow them to
resubmit.

If the result is successful (page has been processed), use a header to
redirect to the same page with a GET parameter such as success=true,
then just display the "Your Email has been sent!" message.

When it POSTS, it does the processing, when it GETS it displays the
result.

Only downside is you can't echo all the info that the user just typed
in.

if (the page is GETed)
{
if (!isset($_SESSION['submit_count'][$unique_page_id]))
$_SESSION['submit_count'][$unique_page_id] = 0;
//add hidden "submit_count" in form with a value
$_SESSION['submit_count'][$unique_page_id].
ini_set('url_rewriter.tags', 'form=fakeentry'); //rewrite only the
form
output_add_rewrite_var('submit_count',
$_SESSION['submit_count'][$unique_page_id]);
}
else if (page is POSTed)
{
if
($_SESSION['submit_count'][$unique_page_id]==$_POST['submit_count'])
{
//seems to be ok. Warning: we didn't take care of multiple
form scenario
//stuff to DB
$_SESSION['submit_count'][$unique_page_id] += 1;
}
else
{
//already processed.
}
