APing logo

There are two formats that you can use. The script format (source) and the "compiled binary" format.
APing is written in python so usually you need a python interpreter on your machine to run it, but there are cases when you don't have one, or you can not install python for  some reasons, well if this is your case you can use the so-called "compiled binary" versions.
But why are the  compiled  binary words in quotes ? That's because the compiled binary format it's not a real  binary, executable file, but just a frozen and packed file.
I have compiled APing for two platforms: GNU/Linux and FreeBSD. If you like the application and you have  compiled, tested  on some other operating systems please let me know.
About Me NOTE: Keep in mind that the "binary"  files are not faster compared to the script format, they are in fact slower !
Use the binary files only if you have no choice
APing is in beta development status so far, but it's stable enough to be used safely
