I am running nodeos on my local machine. I can get the account data for an account by hitting the chain/get_account API. However, I wish to extend its functionality in the form of a plugin without hitting the API but by writing the code to access it internally. Can someone suggest a method to access the data present in shared memory of the node?

You could see the source code in EOS:

There is a function called get_account in plugins/chain_plugin/chain_plugin.cpp
