liboping was inspired by ping, libping and fping: liboping differs from these existing solutions in that it can `ping' multiple hosts in parallel using IPv6 or IPv4 transparently.
Other design principles were an object oriented interface, simplicity and extensibility.
Since version 1.0 has not yet been reached the interface is not yet stable. However, huge changes are not to be expected.
A simple binary, called oping is included. It is like ping, ping6, and fping rolled into one.
