This is something I have asked about before as well... Your suggestion of just defining a large time does not work, since when a telnet command has failed, I do not want to wait an hour for the script to time out !!!

Can you just add some extra parsing that allows you to alter the timeout value on a line per line basis ????

If your already checking for macro syntax (ie %MYMACRO%) embedded within the telnet commands, can you just add suport for seomthing like

<<5000>>make -f blah.mk

where double angle brackets specifies the new timeout value to be used for that particular telnet command ????
