Hostapd and wpa_supplicant frequency range

Good afternoon,


Thank for your answer, I was aware of that fact, indeed, iw list command
lists the frequencies which I wanted, but I have found functions in
hostapd, for instance, wpa_supplicant_conf_ap() where there're defined some
frequency ranges of operating work. I was wondering, whether there is some
more functions in which such a statements are in.

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,

Watanabe
