[gdal-dev] How to export STYLE from Mapinfo to Shapefile?

hi there,

I need to read mapinfo data from a file but:
* when opening the mapinfo file using QGIS only ID field is displayed
within attributes table
* the attribute I need is set at STYLE property at mapinfo file

The result of an ogrinfo line dump is:
   ID (Integer) = 244106
   *Style* = LABEL(t:"335",a:295.100000,s:2.759527g,c:#000000,p:1,f:"Arial")
   POINT (288636.59898806165 7465166.827180054)

I need Style->Label->t value to be converted to a shapefile column (335 value).

Is there any parameter to use with ogr2ogr to export this value?

thanks in advance
