print 'Status: 302 Moved Temporarily'
print 'Location:', url
print 'Pragma: no-cache'
print 'Content-Type: text/html'
print '<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML//EN">'
print '<title>Redirect (302)</title>'
print '<h1>302 Moved Temporarily</h1>'
print '<p>The answer to your request is located at'
hurl = cgi.escape(url, 1)
print '<a href="%s">%s</a>.' % (hurl, hurl)
note that the url must be absolute.
