Syntax element …
Is the …
time interval, in seconds, between receipt of input and receipt of error message, if a utility is not reading input.
Valid intervals range from 1 to 60 seconds.
The default is 5 seconds.
The key-in timeout signals that a utility is not reading any input.
Values less than 5 seconds can cause input to be lost too quickly. Values greater than 5 seconds could cause a delay in delivery of error messages.
To check the current setting, issue the CNSGET command. For more information, see “CNSGET” on page 162.
In this example, the current timeout value is set to 5 seconds.
