[REBOL] Re: Can I Ping in REBOL?

From: mat:eurogamer at: 17-Apr-2001 13:43

Heya Geraint, GJ> Thanks for the response, but since Perl can't use ICMP without being logged-in as the root user and it won't GJ> work properly with other protocols, which CGI language can we use to ping our own server periodically where GJ> security is an issue? Or is it possible to code our own ICMP functions in REBOL or Perl, and if so, how (bearing GJ> in mind that I am an amateur REBOL programmer but the Network Administrator here is fluent in Perl)? You could always use Rebol/view/pro and call an external application to do the pinging? I wrote a whole load of game server polling stuff in Rebol (UDP funkiness) and then found someone had written a command line application that did just about every game server under the sun and also had a funky raw output with your own delimiter chosen. Threw out all my code and slapped that in. It's currently running under Rebol/Command but I've just bought view/pro so I'll probably run that as my other network stuff doesn't work properly under /command. -- Mat Bettinson - EuroGamer's Gaming Evangelist with a Goatee |
