       dump_sockdfr -  Display contents of frozen route file for SOCKS server


       dump_sockdfr [infile]


       dump_sockdfr  reads  in  a  frozen  route file for the SOCKS server and
       produces a listing of its contents on the standard output.

       The argument is optional; if omitted, /etc/ is assumed.

       The frozen route file is produced by make_sockdfr  and  is  essentially
       the  memory image of the parsed route 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/ 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.


       /etc/, /etc/sockd.route
