| If I'm going to port the Linux's ping program to L4, what are the things

| scratch in order to port it to L4? If any, is there a faster way?
| Need some guide, I don't have any porting-application-to-L4 experience
The basic building blocks should already be there. There is a C library
(l4/pkg/uclibc), POSIX bindings are provided by the L4VFS and FLIPS
provides you the opportunity to use a socket interface. So basically
porting should consist of adapting some include paths and libraries.
For the ping utility you might also try to write a basic one on your own
if you don't have an idea about socket programming yet.
