that is a timeout parameter for your wait loop, not entire port. Your wait function above returns, if: - event occurs on port 'c, being it timeout (set by port/timeout: 5), incoming data, port closure by remote site ... - if nothing happens, those 5 sec in your block causes escape ... so you are able to process something else in your main loop ... -pekr-
