dump_socksfc - Display contents of frozen configuratyion file for SOCKS clients
dump_socksfc reads in a frozen configuration file for the SOCKS clients and
produces a listing of its contents on the standard output.
The argument is optional; if omitted, /etc/socks.fc
The frozen configuration file is produced by make_socksfc
essentially the memory image of the parsed configuration file. Using the
frozen configuration file can reduce the start-up delay of the SOCKS client
programs since they no longer have to parse the file contents.
When the SOCKS client 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/socks.conf
. If you use frozen
configuration, you must remember to run make_socksfc
every time after
you modify the plain-text file or the SOCKS clients will continue to use the
frozen file of a previous configuration.
