[fpc-pascal]How to get read-timeouts when reading sockets?

Yesterday evening I tried to build a little telnet-program, just to
test the IP-socket-implementation.
I took the finger-sourcecode, but I got the problem, that I couldn't
determine if there were any data left to read. The eof seems to occur
only when the socket is closed?
Additionally it seems important to me that there is a timeout when
waiting for data just because otherwise a non-standard answer could
block this program.
