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 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 contents. 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.
