[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.
