NAME

       make_sockdfr -  Generates frozen route file for SOCKS server

SYNOPSIS

       make_sockdfr [infile [outfile] ]

DESCRIPTION

       make_sockdfr  reads in a plain-text route file for the SOCKS server and
       produces a frozen route file as the output.

       Both   arguments   are   optional.   The   default   for   infile    is
       /etc/sockd.route;  the  default  for  outfile is /etc/sockd.fr. You may
       specify infile while omitting outfile, but you cannot  specify  outfile
       without also speficying infile.

       The  contents  of the frozen route file is essentially the memory image
       of the parsed input file. Using the frozen route 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 route file
       /etc/sockd.fr  first.  If  that file is not found, it then tries to use
       the plain-text route file /etc/sockd.route. If  you  use  frozen  route
       file, you must remember to run make_sockdfr every time after you modify
       the plain-text file or the SOCKS server will continue to use the frozen
       version of a previous route file.

       To find out the contents of a frozen route file, use dump_sockdfr.
