 Ping Function compatable with Rexx

I'd say you have a little problem here: what you'll get in rc is the result from
RXQUEUE, not from PING. I've run into this problem trapping the output from
NET USE commands. You end up having to parse what you've trapped to see
if the command worked: workable, but a pain.
