       curl_multi_timeout - how long to wait for action before proceeding

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLMcode curl_multi_timeout(CURLM *multi_handle, long *timeout);

       An   application	  using	  the  libcurl	multi  interface  should  call
       curl_multi_timeout(3) to figure out how long it should wait for	socket
       actions - at most - before proceeding.

       Proceeding means either doing the socket-style timeout action: call the
       curl_multi_socket(3)  function  with  the  sockfd   argument   set   to
       CURL_SOCKET_TIMEOUT  and the easy argument set to CURL_EASY_TIMEOUT, or
       simply calling curl_multi_perform(3) if you're using  the  simpler  and
       older multi interface approach.

       The  timeout value returned in the long timeout points to, is in number
       of milliseconds at this very moment. If 0, it means you should  proceed
       immediately  without waiting for anything. If it returns -1, there's no
       timeout at all set.

       Note: if libcurl returns a -1 timeout here, it just means that  libcurl
       currently has no stored timeout value. You must not wait too long (more
       than a few seconds perhaps) before you call curl_multi_perform() again.

       The standard CURLMcode for multi interface error codes.

       Call curl_multi_timeout(3), then wait for action on  the	 sockets.  You
       figure  out which sockets to wait for by calling curl_multi_fdset(3) or
       by a previous call to curl_multi_socket(3).

       This function was added in libcurl 7.15.4.
