Hi Brandon Perry,

You are correct Perry. I am implementing the LibClamAV Library into C# application.  So I need to get the File descriptor from the Stream and need to assign the value to "cl_scandesc" Native method. Am I right?.

It sounds like you are interacting with libclamav from C#. ClamAV requires a rewindable file stream, so a byte array can’t be scanned on its own.

You could map the byte array to a MemoryMappedFile.

Then you could potentially pass the file descriptor for this to native library.
