    flush the arp cache on the computer you are using and then ping the computer, capture the request with wireshark or tcpdump. If you want to write a program then check out www.security-freak.net which has some good introductory tutorials to creating your own packets as well as general socket programming. Also check out beej's guide to network programming(google it), which is a good place to start as well.
