redirect to a perl script with htaccess

If I wanted to perform a redirect with htaccess to a perl script, how would
I perform this, would an example like this suffice:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://.*example.com*$ [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|JPG)$ /path/to/perlscript.pl
[T=application/x-httpd-cgi,R]

You may not want to do this any more with the advent of firewalls like
Norton's that block the HTTP_REFERER! Noticed in my 404 script. I would
use HTTP_REFERER to determine if there was a bad link on my site, or an
obsolete link on someone else site, or if it was direct from a typed
address or bookmark. My logs are showing about 10% blocked and rising

The same way you'd configure your server to redirect to any other kind of
resource.

What was your Perl question? Or your HTML question, for that matter?

Followups have been set to the one relevant newsgroup in the list.

Not really valid for alt.webmaster, either. You you be better to direct them to
an appropriate newsgroup - like alt.apache.configuration.
