yaz_wait -- Wait for Z39.50 requests to complete


int yaz_wait ( [ array options])

This function carries out networked (blocked) activity for outstanding requests which have been prepared by the functions yaz_connect(), yaz_search(), yaz_present(), yaz_scan() and yaz_itemorder(). yaz_wait() returns when all targets have either completed all requests or aborted (in case of errors).

If the options array is given that holds options that change the behaviour of yaz_wait().


Sets timeout in seconds. If a target hasn't responded within the timeout it is considered dead and yaz_wait() returns. The default value for timeout is 15 seconds.
