[GAP Forum] Accessing information in character tables

I need to calculate det(1-tg) for g in a finite group (say C2 x S4).
Is there some way to programatically access the information in the
power maps that are
displayed with each character table?
Right now, I am doing it by hand - printing the table and then looking
up the conjugacy class of
powers of g manually - but I keep feeling there should be a better way
to do it...
Any suggestions would be most welcome please...
