Is there a Google API that can get inbound links?

Hi.

I've recently been asked to develop a small script where one of the requirements is to be able to get the number of inbound links to any URL (via Google, among others).

Is there a Google API that is able to return a list of inbound links for a website, or perhaps just the number of inbound links?

Failing that, should I use the Custom Search API and do a "link:http://www.example.com/" search instead?

Thanks for any advice.
