    httping.exe by Eli Fulkerson
    Please see http://www.elifulkerson.com/projects/ for updates.
    Usage: httping [-t] [-d] [-i interval] [-n times] [-u] url [server-port]
             -t   : ping continuously until stopped via control-c
             -n 5 : for instance, send 5 pings
             -i 5 : for instance, ping every 5 seconds
             -d   : include date and time on each line
             -u   : include target URL on each line
            If you don't pass server-port, it defaults to 80.
