[REBOL] Ping / Trace route in REBOL.

From: james::mustard::co::nz at: 15-Nov-2002 14:25

I was hunting around the net today and couldn't sem to find any examples of a ping tool for rebol - is this a 'missing feature' like someone quoted in 2001 that was left out on purpose? Or is the ping behaviour as specified in RFC-1574, RFC-1575(draft) possible to create through using the existing port object? I was originally intending to write a 1 liner in rebol to do a mass scan on the local network to detect all alive pc's (sometimes when we upgrade existing network installations its useful to be able to quickly detect which address are free - most IT depts we clean up after don't record these or use DHCP servers.) If it is possible does anyone have some sample code to point me in the right direction? Thanks :) James.
