NAME

ping_construct - Constructor for the liboping class


SYNOPSIS

  #include <oping.h>
  pingobj_t *ping_construct (void);
  void       ping_destroy   (pingobj_t *obj);


DESCRIPTION

The ping_construct constructor allocates the memory necessary for a liboping object, initializes that memory and returns a pointer to it.

The ping_destroy iterates over all hosts associated with the liboping object obj, closes the sockets, removes the hosts and frees obj's memory.


RETURN VALUE

The ping_construct constructor returns a pointer to the allocated memory or NULL if no memory could be allocated.
