Yes, but probably you do not want to run TeXmacs as a script,
but rather Scheme, since you just want to extract information from
the TeXmacs document (which can be saved as a scheme expression).
You might want to run TeXmacs as a script though if you want to use it as
a real typesetter. However, this feature has to be improved, because it is
not very clean yet.
