Clamd client(1)			Clam AntiVirus		       Clamd client(1)

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  replace-
       ment.  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 es-
	      pecially 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  single  files are always scanned by	a single thread. Simi-
	      larly, clamdscan will wait for clamd to finish a directory  scan
	      (performed in multiscan mode) before sending request to scan an-
	      other directory. This option can be combined with	--fdpass  (see
	      below).

       -z, --allmatch
	      After  a match, continue scanning	within the file	for additional
	      matches.

       --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  available  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.
