How can a new window send data back to its parent window?

In a nutshell:

Page 1 contains a list of files. Clicking on a filename opens up a popup
window with the file contents and an 'edit' button.
When the edit button is clicked I want to close the window (that I can
do!) and tell the parent to go to edit.php with some data in the
querystring or passed as form data.

Any ideas how I do this?
Basically, I need the new window to tell the parent to go to


Someday we'll look back on all this and plow into a parked car.
