Libping

http://www.joedog.org/libping/index.shtml
Libping is a small C library designed to allow a programmer to make ICMP_ECHO requests directly from a script or program. The distribution includes pinger, a script-friendly utility linked to the library and intended to be invoked directly from scripts. Unlike most ping utilities, libping will timeout on both unreachable hosts and unreachable networks. It returns a value every time it is called, a feature which makes programming ICMP echo requests simpler and more reliable.
