Thread: stumped

  1. #1


    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.

    Try this:
    system("Doscommand >> filename.txt")

    For example:
    system("dir >> filename.txt")

    will send the output of the dir command to filename.txt.

    A single > will also work:
    system("dir > filename.txt")
