^ Great points, Salad. I was curious what would happen if you set the TIMEOUT to 1. While on the topic, if TIMEOUT is set to 0 (or not set at all) does it register that as an unlimited amount of time?
I use ssh-add to add my SSH keys to the SSH agent. By default, it adds them indefinitely. There's a command-line option to specify a timeout, but is there a configuration file option which will specify the default timeout?
What I want is to be able to run ssh-add without any command-line parameters and have it default to a given amount of time for a timeout (as if I had called ssh-add -t 1h).
I'm using Ss galaxy note 10.1 with 4.1.2 os. My device has an annoying problem. Each time a notifications pop out, it wake my tablet up from timeout status (of course) and, it keep the screen wake for hours without switching to timeout mode until the battery running out. Is there anybody has a solution for this issue? I keep my device timeout in 2 mins in settings.
have searched a lot to find out default timeout value of curl. All suggests how to set timeout limit for curl. But Can anybody please suggest what is the default value of curl command timeout time? If its the default socket timeout then how to get that value? Any help will be highly appreciated.
I want to lock a mutex but fail if a timeout expires. Also I don't want to wait much more after the timeout.
I know what you are thinking. pthread_mutex_timedlock. But if the system clock is changed while it is blocking (e.g. if someone runs date --set during the timeout) it can wait for years after (currently up to 44) the timeout should have expired.
Got a large C++ function in Linux that calls a whole lot of other functions, making up an algorithm. At various points given certain bad inputs, the algorithm can get "stuck" and go on forever. Adding a timeout seems appropriate as all potential "stuck" points cannot be predicted.
