Command line tool and library wrappers around iwlist and /etc/network/interfaces.

Project description

Wifi provides a command line wrapper for iwlist and /etc/network/interfaces that makes it easier to connect the WiFi networks from the command line. The wifi command is also implemented as a library that can be used from Python.
