in reply to Passing javascript variables to Perl CGI

Create a hidden input element in the form and set the value with javascript. Then it will be passed as a CGI parameter.

One other thing - You should also remember that some people will have JS off or blocked, so having a CGI only alternative is always recommended.

UPDATE: added caveat
