Linuxed Again!

This time the assignment is of Network Programming, and ofcourse the instructor is Ayaz Ahmed. What we have to do, is to modify the ping [ofcourse you know what it is] source code, and then run it. Pretty easy, huh. But the problem is that Windows wont let modify these basic utilities, so it all has to be done on an Open Source platform, like Linux. The ping source code is available here. In case you are just interested in looking at the source code and dont know a shit about anything remotely Linux, I must advise you to install a decompressor program [WinZip, WinRAR etc] before trying to run the file. Because this file is in the "tar" format, the native Linux compressor.
