Thanks for the links.

Now I have the problem, that both implementations need root 
permissions to execute it under unix.
(I tried the Net::Ping. There I do not have to be root, to execute a 
ping. And I found no SUID program in the perl installation directory.)

Any ideas or one other implementation?
... and still I prefere python ;-)
