display track comments from cue sheet

Cue sheets can have standard comments added to them at the top of the cue sheet that apply globally, such as:

REM DATE "2020"
REM GENRE "Electronic"
REM COMMENT info about file

Each track within the cue sheet can also have comments attributed to them, such as:
...
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 01:46:00
    PERFORMER "The Architex"
    TITLE "Blueprint"
    REM Record Label: Basement
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 08:41:40
    PERFORMER "Funky Technicians"
    TITLE "Airtight"
    REM Record Label: Legend
...

Is there a way to display or extract each track's comment in foobar or even using foo_texttools?

I made a similar type post here about displaying the referenced_offset of each track which I was able to display in foobar and also extract using the Text Tools component. So, I was wondering if this is also achievable.

I gave up after no replies lol, but I just discovered how to do this!

All I needed to do was use REM COMMENT instead of just REM.

So, here's the Text Tools Track pattern:

'['$info(referenced_offset)']' %track%. %artist% - %title% '['%comment%']' '('%length%')'

So, with the previous example
...
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 01:46:00
    PERFORMER "The Architex"
    TITLE "Blueprint"
    REM COMMENT Basement
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 08:41:40
    PERFORMER "Funky Technicians"
    TITLE "Airtight"
    REM COMMENT Legend
...

It results in exactly what I needed:

[01:46:00] 02. The Architex - Blueprint [Blueprint] (6:56)
[08:41:40] 03. Funky Technicians - Airtight [Legend] (6:56)
