Subject: Timeout documented but removed

IO::Socket::INET documents a Timeout feature but it's commented out in the source. 1. Shouldn't someone take it out of the POD? 2. Can someone please point me at how to make my own timeout? 3. Idle curiosity: why was it commented out? cmac

Timeout is used by connect, which is inherited from IO::Socket Show quoted text

It was commented out in configure, because it was moved into connect, if anything those comment should be removed Graham.

Thank you, I learned all that last night, in addition to how to use IO::Select to time out the subsequent recv. OTOH, you might put in the docs that the Timeout is only used for connect and the other thing. cmac On Mar 16, 2010, at 6:12 AM, Graham Barr via RT wrote: Show quoted text

Graham, This ticket caused a little bit of confusion when scanning the RT queue. Can it be closed with a won't fix? Thanks,
