without shell commands suggests that you are GUI only, the C part suggests you want to do it from inside a program?

so maybe say a little more, on what it is you want to do.

i want to write a function which can b called in any other c program,the fun is :: void DevShow(void);void drvShow(void);
This should display all the existing devices /drivers in the system on the screen. it has to display the names .
I wanted to know where exactly is the list stored ,and by wat way can i access that data structure (in user mode)

the /proc file system.

whats in /proc is basically all that can be gathered from syscalls, so if you look up on syscalls, you should be able to request the info about devices/drivers i think, tho i really don't know if there is another way, might want to look at the glibc info pages just to check, it also has some basicish info on the syscall function
