NAME
       clamdscan - scan files and directories for viruses using Clam AntiVirus Daemon

SYNOPSIS
       clamdscan [options] [file/directory]

DESCRIPTION
       clamdscan  is  a  clamd client which may be used as a clamscan replacement. It accepts all
       the options implemented in clamscan but most of them will be ignored because its  scanning
       abilities only depend on clamd.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
	      Display help information and exit.

       -V, --version
	      Print version number and exit.

       -v, --verbose
	      Be verbose.

       --quiet
	      Be quiet - only output error messages.

       --stdout
	      Write all messages (except for libclamav output) to the standard output (stdout).

       --config-file=FILE
	      Read clamd settings from FILE.

       -l FILE, --log=FILE
	      Save the scan report to FILE.

       -f FILE, --file-list=FILE
	      Scan files listed line by line in FILE.

       -m, --multiscan
	      In the multiscan mode clamd will attempt to scan the directory contents in parallel
	      using available threads. This option is especially  useful  on  multiprocessor  and
	      multi-core  systems.  If	you  pass  more than one file or directory in the command
	      line, they are put in a queue and sent to clamd individually. This means, that sin-
	      gle files are always scanned by a single thread. Similarly, clamdscan will wait for
	      clamd to finish a directory scan	(performed  in	multiscan  mode)  before  sending
	      request  to  scan another directory. This option can be combined with --fdpass (see
	      below).

       --remove
	      Remove infected files. Be careful.

       --move=DIRECTORY
	      Move infected files into DIRECTORY.

       --no-summary
	      Do not display summary at the end of scanning.

       --reload
	      Request clamd to reload virus database.

       --fdpass
	      Pass the file descriptor permissions to clamd. This is useful if clamd  is  running
	      as  a different user as it is faster than streaming the file to clamd.  Only avail-
	      able if connected to clamd via local(unix) socket.

       --stream
	      Forces file streaming to clamd. This is generally not needed as  clamdscan  detects
	      automatically  if  streaming is required. This option only exists for debugging and
	      testing purposes, in all other cases --fdpass is preferred.

EXAMPLES
       (0) To scan a one file:

	      clamdscan file

       (1) To scan a current working directory:

	      clamdscan

       (2) To scan all files in /home:

	      clamdscan /home

       (3) To scan a file when clamd is running as a different user:

	      clamdscan --fdpass ~/downloads

       (4) To scan from standard input:

	      clamdscan - <file_to_scan cat file_to_scan | clamdscan -

RETURN CODES
       0 : No virus found.

       1 : Virus(es) found.

       2 : An error occured.
