Tradeskill level display

So I am leveling my gathering skills on yet another alt, and the idea comes to me:

Is there a way to display that I have 102/125 Herbalism?

So I look here, of course, and... No. I take my search to http://wowprogramming.com/docs and it seems that I have to have the tradeskill window open to get this data... which defeats the purpose. So two related questions:

1) Is there a command to gather the tradeskill data without opening the window?
2) If not, how would I go about parsing the chat log for my skillups? Or how bad of an idea is that?

does what you are asking. Maybe take a peak at the functions they use to gather data. I'm guessing they are using a chat parser to see skillups but I haven't looked at the source directly myself.

fwiw, you can get *most* tradeskill info from the blizz api without opening the tradeskill window. if you GetSpellLink(tradeSkill) the 2nd argument is a link to the tradeskill. from that link, you can decode the current and max ranks. doesn't work for smelting tho. blizz for some reason doesn't let you link smelting. never understood this decision (if it was a decision and not just a bug).

oh, and herbalism and skinning probably don't work either since they aren't "tradeskill" type skills.
