I don't think it is necessary to specify a target as the autoupdate script
is checking whether the dat files have been correctly downloaded, by running
the uvscan command.
However you can specify a target file with pathname (as in the mcafeewrapper
e.g. uvscan -d /usr/local/mcafee /export/home/myfile.
uvscan -h gives all the options. One useful option is uvscan --version which
gives the versions of the mcafee data files in use.
Incidentally the dat files downloaded by autoupdate need to be moved to the
so I added 2 lines at
(line 54) my($cp) = '/usr/bin/cp';
(line 119) system("$cp -pf $DATlink/*.dat $mcafeeroot");
