That's mostly what I intended.  What I mean is, a bunch of people
already did the difficult work of reporting the arguments and outputs
to "ping" on their system, so reading the code should at least give
you an idea of how to write code that supports the systems you're
interested in supporting.  (Of course, most likely you only care about
one specific system, in which case you may as well make a throwaway
script with a shell command in it. :))
