SYNOPSIS

fwipe [ files ]

DESCRIPTION

For each regular file listed on the command line, fwipe attempts to overwrite the file five times times with 0’s and 1’s. If suffessful, fwipe attempts to delete the file.

For each file, fwipe prints a response to stdout consisting of the filename, followed by a 0-byte, a status byte, a human-readable message and a newline. The status byte is ’Z’ for temporary failure, ’D’ for permanent failure, and ’K’ for success.

fwipe is simply a shell script, directing the output of echo0 to fwipe0.

None.
