The Question is:

Is there a way to aquire the same information provided by the SDA> SHOW
PROCESS /CHANNEL inside a program?

The Answer is :

  Barring a brute-force scan of the potential I/O channels for the
  process (in the current process context), how willing are you to
  write and use kernel-mode code to scan the CCBs and such (either
  in the current process context, or in the process context of another
  process via an interprocess AST)?
  The OpenVMS Wizard would suggest the internals and data structures
  manual as a starting point, as well as available code examples from
  DECUS symposia.  (eg: a hot file monitor written by Bruce Ellis.)
