How to programmatically access windows XP arp cache

I am developing Windows software to run on an XP machine and wish to enumerate entries in the local PC ARP cache to obtain a list of IP addresses on the local area network that are in the ARP cache. I am using Indy network components with C++ Builder.
Can anyone suggest how to do this without doing an ICMP echo request to IP addresses that are of interest ?

Thanks,

Roger

You can do tat via SNMP, yet it's not quite trivial - see the article plus source code at http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/22483/Edit-Add-Remove-Modify-ARP-Tables
Converting that to C++ builder is possible, but you might have to invest some amount of work.
