client defined timeout variable

Is there a client defined timeout feature in making the HTTP connections
in libwww?  For example, if there is a site which is not responding.

I know that HTTPD or connect times out after a while, but sometimes this
could be a long while. Is there a variable in the libwww that perhaps
check against an environment variable or a extern PUBLIC to determine when
to time out?
