TIMEOUT -T

Post by Simon_Weel »

Minor thing / nitpicking. The section about Timeout lists -T as option. Windows 10 doesn't need the T-option, like timeout 30 works just as well. Windows 10 also lists it as /T and not as -T.

It is worse to mention that waiting time in TIMEOUT is based on system time. If you start "timeout /t 30" and set time one hour back then the command will wait one hour longer. Just tested today on my Windows 10 machine.

CHOICE command or PING are not based on system time. They work as one would expect.
