The best way is actually through python using dbus, because python makes
talking to dbus-enabled services insanely easy.  Otherwise you can use
straight C if you like, but that's much more complicated.  Both the
applet and nm-tool use D-Bus to talk to NetworkManager, so the same
interfaces they use are available from anywhere.  You may also want to
look at dbus-send, which allows you to do things like:

dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.getDevices
