Unhappy How to get the inode address


I would like to know,how would i be obtain the address of an inode entry of a specific file.I know there are two possible ways,by using the iget function specified in the linux/inode.c or try to access the dentries present in the memory.Since i am a newbie in this area,i am finding it hard to access the address of the inode entry.would any one be able to shed some light on my query.

My aim to access the inode entry so i would be able to access the actual addresses on the HD,where the file is stored as fragments.

"ls -i" will give the inode number.I would like to get the starting address of the inode struct stored
after super block in the aim to access the inode struct and access the details directly without using any of the system calls,so i can manupualte the data.
