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.
