[clamav-users] ClamXav and Compressed Files

I am a new member.

I am a Mac user and so I use ClamXav to scan my files.  

My question is: 

‘Does ClamXav scan what’s inside Compressed files like .RAR,  .zip…. and Package files like .dmg?’    Because I feel ClamXav takes
considerably longer to scan the extracted file/s compared to the compressed versions and wonder if it really scans them.

Kind Regards
