liboping0 - C/C++ library to generate ICMP_ECHO requests… more info»
2007-03-27, Version 0.3.5 * liboping.c: Close the filedescriptor in `ping_free', not `ping_host_remove'. Thanks to Esteban Sanchez for submitting this patch. * oping.h: Include <sys/types.h> so that `size_t' is defined. Thanks to Alex Brooks for pointing this out. * oping.h: Use `extern "C"' when being used with C++. Thanks to Alex Brooks for pointing this out. 2006-12-01, Version 0.3.4 * Fixes a bug in `ping_host_remove': Due to an incorrect hostname checking the wrong host would be removed. 2006-07-16, Version 0.3.3 * `sendto(2)' now catches `EHOSTUNREACH' and `ENETUNREACH' if they're defined. 2006-07-13, Version 0.3.2 * `oping' now drops root privileges as soon as possible. * `liboping' now contains an `soname' and a version. 2006-07-09, Version 0.3.1 * Removed `libltdl' from the distribution since it's not used. * More nonsense has been removed from the build system. Thanks to Sebastian Harl for pointing it out :) 2006-07-09, Version 0.3.0 * The ability to set the source address from which the packets originate has been added to the library and the oping application. 2006-07-16, Version 0.2.3 * `sendto(2)' now catches `EHOSTUNREACH' and `ENETUNREACH' if they're defined. 2006-06-05, Version 0.2.2 * The `oping' application didn't exit if no hosts could be resolved. This release fixes it's behavior. 2006-06-01, Version 0.2.1 * Fix the behavior for non GNU-Linux systems. liboping tried to `bind(2)' to the raw-socket it uses to send ICMP packets. Apparently (decided by majority vote ;) this is not the right thing to do. GNU/Linux never complained about it, but works find without the bind. Other operating systems don't work at all with the bind. * Build fixes for non-GNU/Linux platforms: Mac OS X doesn't define `size_t' as `unsigned int' and therefore needs casting and FreeBSD needs to have `sys/types.h' included before `netinet/*.h' 2006-05-29, Version 0.2.0 * It's now possible to set the data to be send to the remote host and to get the data received from the host. * The `oping' binary now calculates the standard deviation. Also, it displays the number of byes that were received and other output changes. * Hosts are now returned in the same order as they were added by `ping_host_add'. This is not guaranteed, but makes `oping' prettier. 2006-05-12, Version 0.1.1 * A bug in the library has been fixed: When the sequence got higher than 2^16 the counter in the packets wrapped around, but the internal counter didn't, causing the library to ignore all further ICMP packets. This affected both, ICMPv4 and ICMPv6. 2006-05-08, Version 0.1.0 * Initial release.
