    give the linux "shred" command a try, it belongs to the linux coreutils

    ...part of the man page...

    NAME
           shred - delete a file securely, first overwriting it to hide
           its contents

    SYNOPSIS
           shred [OPTIONS] FILE [...]

    DESCRIPTION
           Overwrite the specified FILE(s) repeatedly, in order to make it
                    harder for even very expensive hardware probing to recover the
           data.

    Have a nice day :)
