how to detect all IP of a LAN in C or C++

Hello experts, I have a question , I need to know how to detect all the PCs connected in the network...
In windows you can use the explorer to see all the groups and computers in the network, how can I obtain this information programatically ?
Is there a call to windows API or something to do this ?

Kumvjuec I had found that sample before but could you explain what result would that throw ? Would it be the PCs in the network ? I tried to run that sample and I got no results...
Or see this, this has worked on my computer :-)
Hope this will help.
