Default mel scripting for slim

Hi everyone.

I'm brand new at Renderman and could use some help. I just started a new job where they use Slim, and while I'm waiting for Pixar to approve access to the online docs, I would appreciate help from this community. I've done some web searches and found some examples that helped me get started, but I cannot find the following.

1) How to query what is selected. Essentially `ls -sl`, but what I need is what nodes are selected in Slim, not Maya.

2) How to query the selected node types. The other slimcmd I need is one that will enable me to find out what type of appearance a specified node is.

Simple enough if i had docs to guide me, but until then... all help is greatly appreciated.
