the files in the directory is generated.
html An HTML file. The file is returned as is.
man A manual page. The location is the pathname of the nroff source
runman A manual page. The location is the name of the manual page and
its section, separated by a slash. For example, the location
would be intro/1 to refer to the intro(1) manual page.
info An Info file.
text A plain text file (using the ISO-8859-1 character set).
An unknown file type is treated as text.
The location argument gives the filename of the file. The name must be
complete, i.e., it must start at the root directory (/). The name must
not contain any symbolic links (cf. realpath(1)). The file must be
located in or below a directory that has been allowed by the system
administrator; see dwww(7) for more info.
The file may be compressed with gzip(1) or bzip2(1). It is
uncompressed automatically and invisibly. Compression is indicated by
a filename that ends in ‘.gz’ or ‘.bz2’.

not come from the PATH_INFO variable, but from the QUERY_STRING.
