[Nagiosplug-help] Nagios TIMEOUT

Hello list,

I wrote a little nagios plug-in using Perl that communicates across a network.  So as a nice programmer I added the TIMEOUT:

use utils qw($TIMEOUT);
$TIMEOUT = 60;

Every once in a while, the TIMEOUT will take affect and nagios will report:

(Service Check Timed Out)

My question is, instead of Nagios sending out a CRITICAL state for a TIMEOUT, is there any way for Nagios to send out a WARNING state just for THIS script?  If a TIMEOUT occurs on other scripts, I want the state to be CRITICAL.  So is there something I can add to my Perl script so that Nagios will report a WARNING instead of a CRITICAL state?
