JLink How to extract list of tools in use

With jlink WF3 how do I query a sheetmetal manufacturing model and
get the list of tools in use?

If in a sheetmetal manufacturing model you select the "Workcell" tab
then select the "Turret" button this will bring up the "TURRET MANAGER"
dialog. This dialog has a list of all the tools. The information
contained in this list includes the tool name, tool comment, and an
"in use" field.

I would like to use jlink to query this same information in order to
extract the tools in use. I can not find any examples in the jlink
examples directory. Does anybody have any code snippets or pointers
on what classes/methods to get me started?

My current method of doing this is to:
1. Select "NC Seq" tab
2. Select the "CL Output" button.
3. From the "SMT MFG NCL PLAYER" do a File | Save to save the cl file
4. parse this cl file with jlink and look for lines that contain
    "PPRINT / TOOL NAME"

This method works but is crude.

Thanks
