srm is a secure replacement for rm(1). Unlike the standard rm, it
overwrites the data in the target files before unlinking them. This
prevents command-line recovery of the data by examining the raw block
device. It may also help frustrate a physical examination of the disk,
although it's unlikely that it can completely protect against this
type of recovery. Please note that srm will NOT work as expected with
journaled filesystem (e.g. reiserfs, ext3).
