There is a way, with an external, to get the contents of field, if it  
is a standard field in a recognizable window hierarchy.  I have seen  
some tools that create a tree so one can find the path to the field.   
There is also a way to find the frontmost window.

Maybe some of those tools are available in a command-line form and  
shell() can be used to find the data.
