    reading wifi signal level with C

    Hi!
    I am programming in C on Linux and I want my program to be able to read the signal level of the wifi network. Are there any library or api to do that? How can I get the wireless card information (mainly signal level) from my C program?
    I know that programs like airodump uses osdep routines but I dont know how to use it. Any help or orientation will be gratefull!!

    thanks

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
