The capturing will stop after a time of timeout (in this case 60 half-seconds), when the string "OK" is received, or when twenty characters have been received. The script jumps to the label (i. e. ‘anerror') if the given string is not received before either the timeout value or the maximum number of characters ( maxlength) is reached.
