timeout command

The timeout BASIC program sets the time (in seconds) to automatically log off due to inactivity.


 timeout {timeout.value}


timeout.value Indicates the number of seconds to wait.

If the timeout.value variable is set to zero, the timeout waiting feature is turned off.


The following applies to the timeout command:

  • If no timeout value is provided, then the current value displays.
  • A timeout value of 0 disables the timeout. This state is the default.
  • If the line sits at an input for the timeout period, the command specified in the trap functionality is executed. The default is to log off.
