Look at the man page for iwlist. Something like:
sudo iwlist scan | grep -e "ESSID" -e "Quality"
Should give you what you want.


To be or not to be, that is the question
                2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
        0b11000100 || !0b11000100
        0b11000100 || 0b00111011
        255, that is the answer.
