Does ssid="any" work?

I am running wpa_supplicant version 0.5.8. If I set ssid="MyAP", it
works. But, if I set ssid="any" in wpa_supplicant.conf, then calling
wpa_supplicant -Dwext -i eth1 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf &", it
failed, stopped at "WEXT auth param 5 value 0x1 - Added interface
eth1Hack: state = 0x7". What I was missing?

Basically, I don't want to specify a hardcoded ssid, so I can bring
the wifi up in a street open AP. Is it possible, or it is not

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
