Accessing the scanners from the commandline?

Is there any way of accessing the scanners directly from the
commandline in the same way amavis does it?

I can of course do stuff like:

# socat stdin unix-connect:/var/run/avast/avast.sock
220 DAEMON Welcome to New Avast! daemon 0.0.92 (VPS 120808-0 08.08.2012) $PID=11762$
SCAN /var/lib/amavis/tmp/
200 OK
/var/lib/amavis/tmp/ 10.07.2012 .pif [L] 1759314145 Win32:Injector-ARW [Trj]
/var/lib/amavis/tmp/ [L] 1046957622 Win32:Downloader-PXR [Trj]
221 Service closing transmission channel

But the point is that it would be cool to somehow harness the power of
amavis for that :)

While creating the fixed pattern for avast! yesterday I was sending
LOTS of mails just to see if the output could be parsed properly...
