Is there anything similar to .asp return url in php or another language?

What exactly does "return url" do in .asp?
Are you wanting to return the requested URL or maybe redirect the user to an alternative URL?

so you have a page that has says terms/conditions on it that has to be read and agreed to before allowing you to goto the page that you are trying to view

There are numerous ways you could implement this in PHP, but it would at the very least require writing a short script. (In any language I imagine?) HTML form -> Process -> Maintain state (in cookie/session).
Does classic ASP really have something like this built-in?!
I think I know what you are talking about - this is often used on login pages, where, if you want to access certain page, you are sent to login page, and after you log in, you are then sent to the page you tried to visit.
I did not realise this is inbuilt function in ASP and .NET, but from the "outside", what I am seeing in URL of the (for example login script) is something like:
From the login.aspx page, the POST is executed to the above URL (to the login.aspx script), which, after checking the credentials are ok, redirects to www.example.com/some-target-page.aspx specified within the returnURL parameter
I am not aware if this exists as a function in PHP, but it can be coded so that if you get returnURL (or similar named parameter), your script performs a redirect to a location as defined in the parameter if the credentials are ok.
Or alternatively do it as penders said it above.
