    ping + buddy monitor

    ok basically i want to make a budy monitor so is there any way for the the console ping to send data to my c++ program so it can anlalyse if they are online?

    I don't think I can answer, but here's what I have to say:
    You want to have a program that will check to see if other users of some IM service are online, correct? Or is it a certain IP #?
    If it's an IP #, you're out of luck because all modem users change their IP number from session to session, and it's a desired feature for high-speed access as well.
    Just to clarify(correct me if I'm wrong), Ping sends a packet of data to an IP number asking for one back, and calculates the time it took and the quality of those packets. It's probably automatic too.
