Sets the timeout value on
expressed in the sum of
microseconds. Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
When the stream times out, the 'timed_out' key of the array returned by stream_get_meta_data() is set to TRUE, although no error/warning is generated.
Example 1. stream_set_timeout() example
Note: As of PHP 4.3, this function can (potentially) work on any kind of stream. In PHP 4.3, socket based streams are still the only kind supported in the PHP core, although streams from other extensions may support this function.
This function was previously called as set_socket_timeout() and later socket_set_timeout() but this usage is deprecated.
