You can retrieve any enviroment var by using the command  
getenv()   You  pass it the var you want.  For example, if you wanted the path,  

char *ptr;
ptr=getenv(PATH);

If there is an error the ptr is NULL.

This will also work for any env var, even if it is a software kind.  

To set it, you use the putenv()

you pass it the value you want to set.

for example,

ptr="PATH=C:\dos"

putenv(ptr);


I hope this helps.
