dear list,

when calling gen_tcp:recv/3 by specifying a length and a timeout, when will
{error, timeout} be a response? Is it:

1. when no bytes are received for a period longer than the specified Timeout
2. when the number of bytes specified in Length is not received within

if 2, what is the best solution to actually *not* have a recv/3 timeout
while receiving bytes at a very low pace (for instance on very slow

thank you,
