Switching from X-Cart to Pinnacle Cart: 301 Redirect Script


I am switching from X-Cart to Pinnacle Cart. We have a ton of products and links, but we are looking to clean this up. We also do not want to lose our page rankings and need a 301 redirect script that takes the X-Cart links to the new style Pinnacle ones.

X-Cart links look like, these are not real, only example:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

The problem we have is that we have made literally thousands of link variations throughout our sites, and a basic 301 is not what we need. This is due to X-Cart's ability to figure out which product page to show based off the "pr-PRODUCIDNUMBER" portion of the URL link. However Pinnacle has fixed SEO URL links (that are generated once, and therefore do not give SEO headaches and conflicts).

So basically the 301 script needs to do the following:

parse the PRODUCTIDNUMBER (which is after pr-) from the x-cart link. This PRODUCTIDNUMBER will then 301 redirect to the respective Pinnacle Cart product page URL to send the customer to.

You need to tell me how you are going to do this.
