CARP Status

I have several servers running CARP in an active/passive configuration.
Currently the only way that my scripts can determine if a given node is
master is by
periodically executing ifconfig carp1 and grepping for MASTER. Although this
it's kind of clunky.

Is there a better way to detect the CARP status of a server?

Thanks in advance.
