Question

Hey everyone !
I'm currently creating a client/server app.
However when I connect to my server I need to wait for the server to send a message back ( or not (lol) )
So I thought I'll be using threads to wait like 5 seconds for a response and then cancel everything
So I need the function inside my thread to return something and i don't know how to do this.

modem.open(self.port)
local thr = thread.create(function()
  local _, _, remoteAddr, _, _, message = event.pull("modem_message")
  -- do something
  return something
end)
thr:join(5)
-- somehow get the "something" the thread returned
modem.close(self.port)

I hope someone can help me and thanks ^^
