How and where did you search for this information? I was hoping that the
documentation was easily available, but if not, it would be useful to
get more details so that this can be made easier to find.

The developers' documentation for wpa_supplicant has a page about the
use of control interface at

Both wpa_cli and wpa_gui source code is included with wpa_supplicant to
give an example on how the control interface is used.
