srm - securely wipe files
srm is a utility to overwrite files with random data in one or more passes.


srm has been tested on the following operating systems:
    * OpenBSD (5.1-snap)
    * OS X (10.8)
    * Linux (Debian 6.0)

make build install

srm [-v] [-n number] file list

        -n <number of passes>: specify number of passes
                (default is 3 passes)
        -v: verbose mode. display list of failures and wiped files after wiping

Known bugs / caveats
srm can't recursively remove files, i.e. it can't remove directories.
