The handles and corresponding data are stored in the associated space
of the pgm.  You can pretty easily deduce the structure with a little
reverse engineering: by calling the API judiciously against a test pgm
and looking at the effect in the associated space (using DMPOBJ or

You could then write a system-state MI pgm (or a HLL pgm with embedded
MI instructions) that resolves a system pointer to the pgm (with RSLVSP)
and sets a space pointer from that (with SETSPPFP) -- the space pointer
would then address the associated space.  You could write MI code to run
through the list of handles (to answer your 2nd question), or alter the
structure as you wish (to handle your 1st question).
