    4 WHAT IS IT?
    5 -----------
    6 Libping is a small C library designed to allow a programmer to 
    7 make ICMP_ECHO requests and network services inquiries directly 
    8 from a script or program. The library includes support for pinging 
    9 HTTP/HTTPS, POP3, and SMTP services. The distribution includes 
   10 ring, a script-friendly utility linked to the library and intended 
   11 to be invoked directly from scripts. Unlike most ping utilities, 
   12 libping will timeout on both unreachable hosts and unreachable 
   13 networks. It returns a value every time it is called, a feature 
   14 which makes programming ICMP echo requests simpler and more 
   15 reliable.
