It's not entirely clear what you are asking for:
Are you asking for software which tells you about known exons in sequences on
file in a database? If so, then simply read the output from the GCG fetch
Or are you asking for a piece of software which will find exons in sequences
where no-one has any a-priori knowledge of the location of exons within that
sequence? This is an unsolved problem currently, although numerous attempts
have been made at solving it, some of which have had a reasonable degree of
success. These techniques are in the papers published, and if that's what you
are looking for, let me know and I'll look up a few of them.
