%wpa_supplicant implementation is divided into number of independent
modules. Core code includes functionality for controlling the network
selection, association, and configuration. Independent modules include
WPA code (key handshake, PMKSA caching, pre-authentication), EAPOL
state machine, and EAP state machine and methods. In addition, there
are number of separate files for generic helper functions.

Both WPA and EAPOL/EAP state machines can be used separately in other
programs than %wpa_supplicant. As an example, the included test
programs eapol_test and preauth_test are using these modules.

\ref driver_wrapper "Driver interface API" is defined in driver.h and
all hardware/driver dependent functionality is implemented in
driver_*.c.


\section wpa_supplicant_core wpa_supplicant core functionality

wpa_supplicant.c
	Program initialization, main control loop

main.c
	main() for UNIX-like operating systems and MinGW (Windows); this
	uses command line arguments to configure wpa_supplicant

events.c

wpa_supplicant_i.h
	Internal definitions for %wpa_supplicant core; should not be
	included into independent modules


\section generic_helper_func Generic helper functions

%wpa_supplicant uses generic helper functions some of which are shared
with with hostapd. The following C files are currently used:

	callbacks, and signal callbacks)

	may need to be added when porting to new operating systems that are
	not supported by libdnet/libpcap. Makefile can be used to select which
	l2_packet implementation is included. l2_packet_linux.c uses Linux
	packet sockets and l2_packet_pcap.c has a more portable version using
	libpcap and libdnet.

	Wrapper for PC/SC lite SIM and smart card readers

	this could be replaced with C library header file once suitable
	version becomes commonly available

	header files; this could be replaced with C library header file once
	suitable version becomes commonly available
