Upper to lower case letters Can't Post

I have a section in a CGI script that checks to see the referer is me.
I have just noticed that you can log on the site using upper or lower case letters without a problem ie =
However when the script checks the referer is determines that foo does not equal Foo.
What needs to be added to make them equal?

The offending script follows.

if ($ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} ne "" && $ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} !~ /$domain/)
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "<html><head></head><body bgcolor=#FFFFFF>";
print "The form from $ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} cannot be accepted.";

Thanks Darian.
Your solution works fine.
I can't imagine a simpler method as you have only used one additional key stroke.
Solved in less than an hour.
Thanks again.

If you want foo = Foo = FOO then you need to write it like so:

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans serif">code:</font><HR>

if ($ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} ne "" && $ENV{'HTTP_REFERER'} !~ /$domain/i)</pre><HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Adding the "i" at the end of the regex you tell it to not care about case. So now foo = Foo = FOO and so on.
