Stop wpa_supplicant from retrying authentication?

Hi all,

Is there a way to stop wpa_suppliant from retrying on authentication
failures? Can I configure this through the config file? Or is there a
command line option to achieve this?

I'm using wpa_supplicant as a testing tool, so I want the supplicant to
stop on failure, rather than keep trying to reconnect. Of course I can kill
it and start a new one for every authentication, but just wanted to find
out a better to do this:)

Thank you.
