       dump_socksfc -  Display contents of frozen configuratyion file for SOCKS clients


       dump_socksfc [infile]


       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 is assumed.

       The frozen configuration file is produced by make_socksfc and is  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

       When  the  SOCKS  client  starts,  it  always  looks  for  the  frozen  configuration file
       /etc/socks.fc 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.


       /etc/socks.fc, /etc/socks.conf
