Hi Ike,

You should also have a look at hping (#6 on Fyodors tools list this year).
www.hping.org - check out the wiki at wiki.hping.org

or just save yourself a lot of time and build it from ports:


The man page is quite informative.

Many timing, output, and protocol options are available.
Easily scriptable, you can also use the underlying API in programs
(as Fyodor did with Nmap).
