Setting timeout on socket calls

 Setting timeout on socket calls

When connecting to a terminal server using a socket object, I set the
timeout value to 10. The documention doesn't state the units of time but
I presume it's in seconds. The documents further states that the timeout
is used for "some" operations.
The problem is that if the serial device is not connected to the
terminal server the script hangs on the : "
$socket->recv($response,10);" I create the socket as listed below:

      $socket = IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr => $hostname,
       PeerPort => $remote_port,
       Proto    => "tcp",
       type     => SOCK_STREAM,
       timeout  => 10);

 I send the command to the terminal server ethernet socket, the terminal
server will
send the command out the appropriate serial port. The recv command is
wait for
a response back from the serial port via network socket, but it just

     print "Wait for response, command sent";
     print "I never get to here";
