     This is a program that will securely erase a file. This program was coded so that it can be copied into a module without needing to make modification. this method of mine works by randomly generating a random character then overwriting every character in the file with it, Then on the next pass over use a new character. This program will let the user pick how many passes to make on the file as well. The code is commented but please let me know if you have further questions. Also this is my first upload, please let me know what you think and Enjoy!!!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
