How to read long text of data elements and function modules?


If we display a Data Element in SE11 and click the 'Documentation' button, we are able to see its long text. Can we retieve the same long text in an ABAP program through SELECT from some table or through a function module call?

Similarly, for any Function Module, the long texts can be viewed in SE37 for the Import, Export, Changing, Tables and Exceptions parameters and also the Function Module documentation. Can all these long texts be retrieved in an ABAP Program?
