this LINK is a search on the IBM Library server which returns all manuals with 'CICS'.

the information that you need is found in the CICS Administration Manuals.

as far as your question goes, application programs never have to 'directly' access these tables, nor should they. The CALLs to CICS API's that you code will invoke routines to access these tables, but this is under-the-covers type of stuff that you do not directly code, or have to worry about. Basic info about these tables is contained in the CICS Application Programmers' Guides, and is intended as an overview so that you can understand the CICS API's that you need to code as an application programmer.

Further to Dick's comments, the details of these tables are confidential internal material to IBM and I sincerely doubt you could get this information unless you work for IBM as a CICS developer.

You can use commands like EXEC CICS INQUIRE PROGRAM or EXEC CICS INQUIRE TRANSACTION and so on, to retrieve the contents of these tables.
However use of these system commands is usualy restricted. If you are a System Programmer there should be no problem.
System Programming Reference books are here
