Nowadays, wireless networks are very common. In some places, users can even find more than one network to connect.

Programs like iwlist can be used to scan and list the available networks to a wireless network card. However, this is a command line tool that outputs information formatted as plain text.

This class can execute iwlist and parse its output to extract relevant information about the available wireless networks. Subsequently, this information can be presented in a more user friendly Web based interface using PHP.
