Question Get info from Render Settings using MEL

I am making a script that gets the values from the render settings, and I am currently having a problem getting the value for a couple of them. The values I am having issues with are Normal Tolerance and Final Gather Mode, under the Final Gather Settings. I turn on "Echo All Commands" in the script editor to see what the function is, but it shows a list of commands, or it just runs the same command over and over again, but none of them make sense to me. My goal for this is to take the value from these and store them for later use. I would also like to update them through the scripts.

Does anyone know how to access these?

Thanks for any help.

Mental Ray settings are under the node : "miDefaultOptions" in your outliner (you have to un-tick "DAG objects only".

It should give you better result in your "echo all commands".

Hope it help.
