Change *PING timeout

Sun May 08, 2016 2:31 am

Hi, I'd like to change the timout for the RISCOS PING command to something less than a second. I'm tracking the uptime of my router and currently the PING timeout seems to be around 10 seconds which makes second accurate timing, which is what I'm striving for, impossible. Can the timout for PING be adjusted :?:

The SWI's NetFS_ReadFSTimeouts and .._SetFSTimeouts looked promising :) but when called from BASIC by name or number ReadFSTimeouts returns 'SWI not known' :( any help for the Klingons?

I've almost managed to prove that my broadband works fine when I don't use it :roll: , maybe it is indeed quantum dilemma but possibly ethernet mains adapters are causing connectivity problems.. and making the router reboot?!, anyone else seen that kind of Roswell shit with mains/ethernet adapters?. Oddly, the modem hasn't votively rebooted for several days since I started pinging the bloody thing so maybe it really is quantum :shock:

The Klingons, Roswell and votively, is that a Latin case? Maybe you should come in from the cold and boot up R. jessie for a while.

Inported valise or no, stderr, RISCOS is way more fun! It's like having one of these!

:oops: I belatedly see an option to flood ping which transmits until 'x' packets are received :geek: 8-) Honour is restored.. K'pla!
