Hi guys,

Waiting for your reply. It should be simpler answer.

Does ClamAv support virus checking in stream mode for large files?

If i have file size of 10Mb do i have to send all data to clamAv and clamAv
will send "status ok"
or it can scan data in each packet and return status for each segment?
