Timeout Keyword

<Timeout N1>
<t N1>
<Timeout counterN2>
<t counterN2>
<Timeout cN2>
<t cN2>


    T parameter and switch alternative.  Sets the subject response timeout in milliseconds to N1 or the switch version can take the value of counter N2 (at item parsing time), default value is 4000ms.


   The ability to use a counter exists primarily to facilitate fixed time experiments where the subject only gets a certain time to respond to as many items as they can:


+250 <set c1=50000> <t c1> "#########"/*"RELUCTANT"/;
+250 <set c1=c1-lastrt> <t c1> "#########"/*"LANDSCAPE"/ <bi 999,c1 .le. 0>;
-250 <set c1=c1-lastrt> <t c1> "#########"/*"CORTINDON"/ <bi 999,c1 .le. 0>;
-250 <set c1=c1-lastrt> <t c1> "#########"/*"SPORINTIC"/ <bi 999,c1 .le. 0>;
...
999 L "End of Experiment";
