Though may not be practical, assuming a case where more than say 20-30 AP (infra and ad-hoc) active in a wi-fi zone. How can we get information about all the active APs in the wi-fi zone using wpa_cli and wpa_supplicant?

iirc, there is a method of retrieving scan results on a per bss basis, this
may exist in 0.6.X branch only. You didn't mention much details though.

Thanks, Kel.
