WPA_CLI: Difficulty switching from 1connection to another

I can get you a log and a list of commands, but not until Monday am Pacific
Standard Time.

In the meantime, I just sent you a synopsis of what I'm wanting to achieve.
Perhaps you can add comments / correct my steps.

Or just provide the proper sequence of commands to accomplish my highlevel
goal (please see below).

My hopes are to send a series of commands to the supplicant in order to
connect to a number of different networks with a countless number of
identities and passwords (I'll take care of the other security variables
such as eap and phase, etc).

Hopefully this makes sense.

Tell you what, if you could send me the proper sequence of commands list.
I'll try it out to the 'T' and send you the log that comes from it (if
doesn't work).  That way you are in charge and really know how to examine
the logged results.

sound reasonable?

as always thanks so much!!
