Description: ------------ This is more a feature request than a bug. With the current code it is not possible to set a timeout for requests e.g. to Neither XML_Unserializer nor XML_Parser currently support timeouts, because XML_Parser uses fopen() to retrieve the XML data from a web service. But both take also a resource or a string as a parameter, opposed to a file name/url. To implement timeouts you would need to create the socket yourself with fsockopen() and pass the resource handle instead of the original url to XML_Unserializer::unserialize().

This bug has been fixed in CVS. In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the end of next Sunday (CET) on In case this was a website problem, the change will show up on the website in short time. Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PEAR better. Fixed by using HTTP_Request in Weatherdotcom.php, specifying timeout parameter at SOAP_WSDL in Ejse.php & Globalweather.php

Looks good, but the timeout should be configurable. You can keep the 60 secs as a default if no other value is specified.
