liboping-1.9.0.tar.gz and liboping-1.10.0.tar.gz

About: liboping is a C library to generate ICMP echo requests, better known as "ping packets". It can "ping" multiple hosts in parallel using IPv4 or IPv6 transparently. A commandline and a ncurses-based application are included.

-b Audible bell. Print a ASCII BEL character (\a or 0x07) when a packet
is received before the timeout
occurs. This can be useful in order to monitory hosts' connectivity w
ithout looking physically at
the console, for example to trace network cables (start audible beep,
disconnect cable N: if beep
stops, the cable was in use) or to tell when a host returns from a re
boot.
This relies on the terminal bell to be functional. To enable the term
inal bell, use the following
instructions.
· the visual bell is disabled in your terminal emulator, with the +
vb commandline flag or the
following in your .Xresources:
XTerm*visualBell: false
· the PC speaker module is loaded in your kernel:
modprobe pcspkr
· X11 has the terminal bell enabled:
xset b on; xset b 100
· and finally, if you are using PulseAudio, that the module-x11-bel
l module is loaded with a pre-
loaded sample defined in your pulseaudio configuration:
load-sample-lazy x11-bell /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/c
omplete.oga

INTERACTIVE KEYBOARD CONTROLS
When running noping, the type of graph being displayed can be changed by
using the g key. A new host
can be added at any time with the a key.
