Hi Riyadh,

I don't think there is currently any support for time-outs in the library.

One issue you may want to consider is if (ic_)probing_for_scheduling is 
the best way to tackle your scheduling problem. I think it is the only
ECLiPSe library that specifically mention scheduling, but this does not 
mean it is suitable for all scheduling problems. Depending on your 
problem, it may be better (more efficient) to write your own program to 
solve the problem. Have you tried to solve your problem with another 
approach, or did you find probing_for_scheduling to be best for your 
problem? There are several scheduling examples under the "Planning and 
Scheduling" section in:

Cheers,

Kish
