Actually you can do this from Rev to a text file and then you can read 
the text file from Rev, parse the data and delete the text file. Here's 
an example (off the top of my head):

on mouseUp
  put "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\" & \
     "Control\Nls\CodePage" into tKey
  put "regedit.exe /c c:\temp.txt " & tKey into tCmd
  set the hideConsoleWindows to true
  get shell(tCmd)
  put url ("file:C:/temp.txt") into tData
  delete file "C:/temp.txt"
  -- now parse the data and extract your list...
end mouseUp
