This is a redirection script like the ones you've seen on the major search engine sites. You pass it the name of the file and the URL for redirection. Then, the script writes the current date and time plus the domain name into the specified file and redirects the user to the given URL. It uses the GET method as opposed to POST. You'll note that most other redirection scripts do the same thing, probably because it means you don't have to wrap each link around a form or some such other nonsense.

If you've been looking for a simple way to keep track of who has been clicking on your banner ads, or if you just want to log all traffic to certain URLs, this is an easy and cool way to do it.
