Feasibility of Capturing Data read by BDM to file

With the true time simulator, you can add various expressions to the data window and put the data window into periodic refresh so that all the expressions in the window are updated once per period. This is handy. Is there some API or some other method to append each snapshot into a file? 
 
Basically we are starting SQA on a project, and have opted to dump all the data we want to analyze out of a spare UART and into a PC for post processing. But this is still kind of intrusive for CPU cycles and memory usage -- I was just wondering if there was a way to capture the  contents of memory locations automatically, periodically to a file.
 
We are using CW 3.1 for HCS08 but are amenable to upgrading.
