Re: [Clamav-users] [Fwd: [Clamav-devel] 0.93.1 / libclamav: no CL_EMAX*-Error-Codes for Applications?]

please take a look at the following scenario: I receive a zip-archive containing more files than configured in MaxFiles. the files at the end of the archive (after the limit) are viruses. the scanner will abort the scan when reaching the max-files-limit and will return CL_CLEAN. i have no information from the scanner that the scan is aborted and not all files have been scanned.

but in my use-case I need this information. I think the scanner should return the corresponding error-codes (CL_EMAX*), that the application has the posssibility to handle it. applications which are not interested or annoyed by these errors can ignore it.
