An iwlist parser.

Project Description

Parse the output of iwlist scan to get the name, address, quality, channel, and encryption type of all networks broadcasting within your Wireless NIC’s reach.


`bash iwlist <INTERFACE_NAME> scan | ./iw_parse `

Replace <INTERFACE_NAME> with the system name for your wireless NIC. It is usually something like wlan0. The command iwconfig will list all of your network interfaces.


`bash iwlist wlan0 scan | ./iw_parse `


  • The vast majority of iw_parse was written by Hugo Chargois.


iw_parse is free–as in BSD. Hack your heart out, hackers.
