.SH Description
.B regulatory.bin
is the file used by the Linux wireless subsystem to keep its regulatory
database information. It is read by
.B crda
upon the Linux kernel's request for regulatory information for a specific
ISO / IEC 3166 alpha2 country code. The regulatory database is kept in
a small binary format for size and code efficiency. The
.B regulatory.bin
file can be parsed and read in human format by using the
.B regdbdump
command. The
.B regulatory.bin
file should be updated upon regulatory changes or corrections.
.SH Upkeeping
The regulatory database is maintained by the community as such
you are encouraged to send any corrections or updates to the
linux-wireless mailing list:
