I've actually started working on a check_or plugin and it's very
interesting.  Because I want it to act like most local operators, I've
added short-cut execution.  So, in check_or, if the first check
succeeds, the 2nd check never happens, which has interesting

> state[CRITICAL]=((check_a == OK) || (check_b > check_c)) && !check_d

> state[CRITICAL]=$check_a$ !~ /error|failed/

Where is that?  Is that in a nagios configuration file or in the code
of a plugin, or somwhere else?
