fwipe overwrites your file a specified number of times (default: 5) and then deletes it. It is extremely secure; it will not be confused by filenames containing special characters, and is suitable for use in cleanup scripts by system admins.
Release Notes: This release adds Red Hat 6.2 RPM support.
Release Notes: A new "slowness" feature has been added to ease console "freezing" during large wipes.
Release Notes: This release was overwriting with zeros but not ones, now uses unbuffered writes reducing CPU consumption, and overall performs the same since I/O is the limiting resource.
Release Notes: Command-line options were added. For example, "fwipe0 -n" can now be used with Dan Bernstein's maildirserial command to securely erase the contents of a qmail maildir. Typos in the man pages were also cleaned up.
Release Notes: First public release.
