Default Can't get PATH_INFO using getenv()

I'm running a small C test app that just prints out environment variables. It prints out REMOTE_ADDR but PATH_INFO is null and PATH_TRANSLATED is empty. Essentially, this is all it is.

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void){
char* status;

status=getenv("PATH_INFO");
printf("%s",status);
}

Is your PATH_INFO actually set? It isn't set on my system, but if I set it, it will properly print the value.

How does this compare to the output of env(1)?

Yeah, apparently it's not set. I can use request_uri instead. It's a shared host so I only have access to htaccess. Does that mean I can't set it? I mean get path_info to show? Can I use env?
