in thread Setting timeout threshold when connecting to a socket.

Thanks, but I've alread read that (in fact, I even created a link to that in my original message). Either I am missing something really obvious, or the perldoc isn't al that helpful here

I guess my questions are: what is the correct OPTNAME to control the connection timeout, and how do I do I know what kind of data structure to use in OPTVAL?
