i hve to write a program to retrieve system details like , processor specification ,memory size ,hard sisk partition  on a linux   pc .

the program specification tells :
               1) Dont use kernel modules
               2)Dont read from /Proc/*        files
               3)Dont use  exixting command like cpuinfo ,fdisk  etc ....

Is there any another way to get all the PCI  and USB information  and CPU info  ???

What's the point in it? The tools are there for reason and it will be hard enough to gather all the information you like form the /proc filesystem.
