I have seen posts that tell you how to use HCD to find the esoteric unit names defined on your system. What I am trying to do is to find those names within an assembler language program. Does anyone out there know of a system call that I could use to obtain that information? Or alternatively, a file or set of files that I could open in my program and search for the unit name I am looking for?

EDTINFO macro gives you the information that you need about esoteric unit names.
