Issue #5101 has been updated by Akira Tanaka.

File socket-tcp-connect-timeout.patch added

I made a pactch for connect_timeout for Socket.tcp.

with timeout:
% time ./ruby -rsocket -e 'Socket.tcp("192.0.2.1", 80, :connect_timeout=>1)'
/home/akr/ruby/tst1/lib/ruby/1.9.1/socket.rb:48:in `rescue in connect_internal': Connection timed out - user specified timeout (Errno::ETIMEDOUT)

without timeout:
% time ./ruby -rsocket -e 'Socket.tcp("192.0.2.1", 80)'

----------------------------------------
Feature #5101: allow optional timeout for TCPSocket.new
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5101

Author: Eric Wong
Status: Assigned
Priority: Low
Assignee: Akira Tanaka
Category: ext
Target version: 1.9.x


Proposed API would be:

   TCPSocket.new(remote_host, remote_port,
		 connect_timeout: 0.5, local_host: nil, local_port: nil)

Or:

   TCPSocket.new(remote_host, remote_port, connect_timeout: 0.5)

For the common case.


This would only timeout for establishing the TCP connection, not DNS
resolution.  DNS resolution can be covered by Feature #5100.

The existing form for the (rarely-used) local_host/local_port args will
still be supported for backwards compatibility:

   TCPSocket.new(remote_host, remote_port, local_host=nil, local_port=nil)


The current construct for doing a non-blocking connect with timeout
is too verbose:

    addr = Socket.pack_sockaddr_in(9418, "127.0.0.1")
    s = Socket.new(:AF_INET, :SOCK_STREAM, 0)
    begin
      s.connect_nonblock(addr)
    rescue Errno::EINPROGRESS
      IO.select(nil, [s], nil, 0.5) or raise Timeout::Error
    end

And could be replaced with:

    TCPSocket.new("127.0.0.1", 9418, connect_timeout: 0.5)

I am not sure what exception TCPSocket.new should return.  Timeout::Error
seems like a reasonable choice...
