liboping is a C library to generate ICMP echo requests, better known as "ping packets". It is intended for use in network monitoring applications or applications that would otherwise need to fork ping(1) frequently. liboping was inspired by ping, libping (homepage vanished) and fping: it differs from these existing solutions in that it can `ping' multiple hosts in parallel using IPv4 or IPv6 transparently. Other design principles were an object oriented interface, simplicity and extensibility: Is simple because there are only a few interface functions and no external dependencies. It's extensible since all (internal) data is kept in "opaque data types", so the storage may change or be extended without applications noticing it.
