Feature #5100

allow configurable timeouts in resolv.rb

Added by normalperson (Eric Wong) about 9 years ago. Updated almost 9 years ago.

Target version:


Currently the resolv.rb timeouts are hard-coded and too high for some
users. It would be nice to have an easy way of timing out DNS requests without
resorting to the innefficient and potentially dangerous "timeout" library.

I've added a timeouts= instance method to Resolv::DNS. I'm unsure about
the API, but it should be usable (test case included).

Also pullable via git:
git pull git:// resolv-timeout
