You can develop command line utils for FM using Mekon's FrameAC, which
is an ActiveX API for FrameMaker. This would allow you to control
FrameMaker, open your documents, extract the info (given that there are
rules that can be applied to get it), and then create another FM

This allows you to use VB, JavaScript, VBScript or any COM based
programming language to control FrameMaker. It also allows you to use
VBScipt/Jscript directly within FrameMaker.

You can find out more about and request an eval FrameAC here:
