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.
