Not sure where to post this, but programming seems at least a tad bit close.
I've wrote a script which lists all nearby wireless access points. With it, you can select one of those networks and automatically associate with it, or you can choose to automatically connect to the strongest access point (unencrypted or encrypted).
1. wireless_tools (iwconfig,iwlist)
2. wpa_supplicant (for connecting to WPA networks)
3. dhcpcd (may with some minor editing work with others)
This script is written for archlinux, and I need help with two things
1. Test/debug the script for archlinux users
2. Test/debug the script for other distro users.
It's my general opinion that it will work for most arch-systems, and likely with others. But it's hard to be sure without having anyone really testing it with others. So for my personal system this script works flawless.
The script doesn't write any config files, so no backups are neccessary.
The script, lsnet, can be found here:
