Set a timeout on blocking socket operations. The *value* argument can be a
nonnegative float expressing seconds, or ``None``. If a float is given,
- subsequent socket operations will raise a
n :exc:`timeout` exception if the
+ subsequent socket operations will raise a :exc:`timeout` exception if the
timeout period *value* has elapsed before the operation has completed. Setting
a timeout of ``None`` disables timeouts on socket operations.
``s.settimeout(0.0)`` is equivalent to ``s.setblocking(0)``;
