    ping... return data?

    is it possible to write a program that pings a certain computer and then returns the data to the program to be analized? im trying to write a program to ping proxy's and determine their response time and sort them from lowest ping to highest...

    thank you for your time

    What you can you is call the 'ping' from inside you program using the system() function. In your call you can redirect the output of ping to a file. After ping did its job, you can read the contents of the file and sort the data based on your needs.

    The better, but more time-consuming solution, would be to implement your own ping process inside your program, or even as a separate process and exchange data between the two functionalities.

    1 rule of the Samurai Code: if you have nothing to say, don't say anything at all!
