Minor feature enhancements
Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for Unix. The main purpose of
this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment
scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded
daemon, a commandline scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via
Internet. The programs are based on a shared library distributed with
the Clam AntiVirus package, which you can use in your own software.
The cygwin clamav package comes in four parts:
clamav: the executables and binaries
libclamav5: the shared library since 0.94
libclamav-devel: development resources (headers, static-
and import libraries)
clamav-db: the two database files.
