       dump_socksfc  -   Display  contents  of  frozen configuratyion file for
       SOCKS clients


       dump_socksfc [infile]


       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.
