       dump_sockdfc -  Display contents of frozen configuratyion file for SOCKS server


       dump_sockdfc [infile]


       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 is assumed.

       The frozen configuration file is produced by make_sockdfc 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 server program since it  no  longer  has  to  parse  the  file

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


       /etc/sockd.fc, /etc/sockd.conf
