It depend on what kind of Post you are using and What kind of Tool Information you want to output. If you used SPost, it is easy!
You just need to edit your Surfcam.pst and add the -toolinfo in the Command line

Like these:
PostItem DMC-64V 635V TNC530 ISO
Status DMC-64V TNC530 ISO
Command "C:\SURFCAM\Velocity3\INC2APT" -op -toolinfo -I "%p%n" -O "%p%N.apt"
ChDir "C:\SURFCAM\Velocity3\SPOST"
Delete "%p%N.I"
Command "C:\SURFCAM\Velocity3\SPOST\SPOSTM" "%p%N.apt" 3187 "%p%N.I"
Task "C:\SURFCAM\Velocity3\Editnc\editnc" "%p%N.I"
