dump_socksfc - Display contents of frozen configuratyion file for
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.
make_socksfc(8), socks.conf(5), socks.fc(5)
