in thread first "project"

Thanks for the input! But actually, I did tweak this front-end to work with clamav, which is also on the website here. I don't work on it much, but it does work - although VERY slowly! If you can see any reason why it runs slow for me, let me know and I'll change it.

    Ok I see you are running a perl module interface to clamav

    use Mail::ClamAV qw/:all/;
    I'm talking about running the clamscan program itself directly:
    my $results = `clamscan $dir`;
    or something using Tk::Fileevent like:
    my $dir = "/var/spool/mail"; my $program = "/usr/local/bin/clamscan $dir"; open(SCAN, "$program 2>&1 |") or die "Can't open: $!"; $mw->fileevent(\*SCAN, 'readable', [\&fill_text_widget,$t]); MainLoop; sub fill_text_widget { my($widget) = @_; $_ = <SCAN>; $widget->insert('end', $_); $widget->yview('end'); }

    Its almost always faster to run properly designed c programs when doing alot of file access and reading, so let clamscan do it.


    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. flash japh
      Ok, I rewrote the clamscan version with your suggestion (see this). But it's still a little sluggish compared to the File::Scan version.

      I'd really like to switch to just doing the clamscan version, as it detects many more viruses.

      I'll try the Tk::Fileevent attempt soon. Thanks!
