Maybe his computer is doing more ... i.e. a portscanner that pings first? That's what I do, 'cause it's way easier to write a program that opens ports in a tight loop than to muck with ICMP from C/C++. If anybody knows an easy/portable way to muck with ICMP in C/C++ though, i'd be intrested in knowing it/seeing links. I readily accnowledge that my solution is more of a cop-out because I'm too lazy to write a lot of code.
But, how can I draw this output from the window for use in my program? I need to know if the computer is active or not since I am digging for files. Should I put all of the output from the pink result into a text file and then search it for target information? And if so, how? I keep hearing about piping or something along those lines, but I just want some simple way to just retrieve that output without having to break a leg over a pile of excess code.
Hi, i've tryed to put this code to run but it didn't compile.
my compiler didn't recognize the headers without .h , the "static strings" global declared and the "using namespace std". What compiler have you used?

Here you go..
using namespace std;
static string host;
static string ping_again;
cout << "Host: ";
cin >> host;
system (("ping " + host).c_str());
cout << endl;
cout << "(Y)es or (N)o\n\n";
cout << "Ping another host: ";
cin >> ping_again;
if (ping_again == "Y" || ping_again == "y")
else if (ping_again == "N" || ping_again == "n")
