dump_sockdfc - Display contents of frozen configuratyion file for SOCKS server
dump_sockdfc reads in a frozen configuration file for the SOCKS server and
produces a listing of its contents on the standard output.
The argument is optional; if omitted, /etc/sockd.fc
The frozen configuration file is produced by make_sockdfc
essentially the memory image of the parsed configuration file. Using the
frozen configuration file can reduce the start-up delay of the SOCKS server
program since it no longer has to parse the file contents.
When the SOCKS server starts, it always looks for the frozen configuration file
first. If that file is not found, it then tries to use
the plain-text configuration file /etc/sockd.conf
. If you use frozen
configuration, you must remember to run make_sockdfc
every time after
you modify the plain-text file or the SOCKS server will continue to use the
frozen file of a previous configuration.
