How to find Dependent Components for a Class/Page/Trigger using API (Tooling or Metadata API)?

Hi,
 
We are trying to automate certail processes for which we need to find the dependent components for a Class/Page/Trigger.
 
We understand that salesforce is providing dependent components using "Show Dependencies" button when respective components are viewed but is there a way to get these programatically?
 
Any details around this is much appreciated.
 
Thanks!
