Exit codes
       If  you start AVPLinux from a script file, you may analyse
       its exit code.

       following values (exit codes) in the low half-byte:

              0 - no viruses detected;

              1 - scanning was interrupted;

              2  - objects containing a modified or damaged virus
              were detected;

              3 - suspicious objects were detected;

              4 - one or more viruses were detected;

              5 - all infected objects are disinfected;

              6 - infected objects are deleted;

              7 - AVPLinux or AVPDaemon files are corrupted.

              8 - files  are  corrupted  or  the  I/O  error  has

       These codes are assigned only if  the  program  error  has
