I guess that's not possible.
Of course you may iterate over all possible IPs, and ping them, but often firewalls drop icmp-echo-requests.
No answer isn't guaranteed to mean 'IP unused'.
If your network is the internet (it often is, isn't it?), and you would try to get every IP - what a fun for young people hanging around...
Why do you need it?

...plus there are problems of machines being turned off at that particular time, but which may still use a given IP.
Even if your network is using a DHCP server, I don't think there is a way to find out the available addresses - just a way to be assigned a new one.

... and (as I found out the hard way) it shows up as a port scan on any intrusion detection systems
I agree. Here's the link:
