Getting information from Inf driver file

Hi, i wondered if there was anything (tool/code) available to obtain information from an .inf driver file. I tried to create a vbs script that retrieved information like the vendor, the device name, the windows version and so on from inf files. But as far as i can see there is no real structure in the inf files. Each vendor has his own method of building them. Is there a windows function i could call to retrieve this information, as windows has to import the information from the file. Something like getVendorname from inf ==> Intel or getdevices from inf ==> 14F1,"Conexant HDA D330 MDC V.92 Modem"

    Scatman, Is there a reason you need to specifically get the information from the INF file itself or do you know that's a location that contains the information you need. You can gather a great deal of detail from a system about hardware installed, drivers used and other stuff via Windows Management Interface or WMI. If you can share a bit more information on what you need I'd be happy to either point you in the right direction or write a blog entry specifically on your example.
