need to run a virus check on a uploaded file

I have a webserver that allows users to upload files to their webspace

I would like to run a virus scan on the files on upload. I am running fedora core 4, apache 2 and tomcat.

I have been looking for command line driven anti virus programs

The perl script or java servlet , would need to execute a system command to run the virus check and do something based on the results.

I thought panda would work, but can not be run from command line with out using curses.

Thanks for any help
