Given the other responses I may be way off, but my impression is that you want to accomplish the following:

  1. the values of the variables $project et al. are set when Dispatcher.cgi.pl is executed;
  2. when TAZ.pl is executed, you want to use those values.
Unfortunately this is not possible in a trivial way since once the execution of Dispatcher.cgi.pl is done, the values of all variables are gone without a trace.

What you want to accomplish is the notion of a session, i.e. several interactions with a webserver that maintains the state between those interactions.

The simplest way to do this is to embed the values of the variables you want to preserve in the HTML code the first script generates using hidden input fields. This is quick & dirty, hard to maintain and unsafe.

Another way is to store those values in cookies on the client with all drawbacks associated with the use of cookies.

Yet another is to use some session framework such as CGI::Application which is quite mature but might be intimidating at first.

The "right thing to do" depends strongly on the type of job you've at your hands.

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-
