Hi all,

Is there a way to set the timout limit that affects Net::HTTP ?
This is what I'm trying to do:

  body = Net::HTTP.get(URI.parse(url))

and I do know that the target script (url) takes a long time to do
its processing and to return the data to the calling script, so 
that's why I want get() to ignore any timeouts (or to set them high
enough).

This is what I get right now:

/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/protocol.rb:197:in `rbuf_fill': socket read timeout (60
sec) (Timeout::Error)
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/protocol.rb:160:in `readuntil'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/protocol.rb:171:in `readline'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:1760:in `read_chunked'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:1739:in `read_body_0'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:1705:in `read_body'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:1730:in `body'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:1668:in `reading_body'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:835:in `request'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:297:in `get_by_uri'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:296:in `start'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:296:in `get_by_uri'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:282:in `get_response'
        from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:263:in `get'
        from jobqueue.rb:41



Any tips/pointers are appreciated, thank you,
Alex

P.S. I did read http://www.ruby-doc.org/stdlib/ -> net/http but
haven't seen any method/parameter that might help me on this...
