Sure.. the one iwconfig is using, i.e., wireless extensions ioctls.
Please check wireless tools source code. It includes iwlib that could
probably be used. Anyway, the ioctl use is quite simple and there are
also some examples in hostapd code on how to use these ioctls() without
any additional library.
