Linux - Turn Files Into Dummies
« on: January 08, 2015, 07:13:11 AM »
The dummy program.

Overwrites the contents of a file with the word "DUMMY". The file
gets truncated as a result.

Comes in handy if you don't want to delete the files, but they're
taking up too much space.

The recovered sectors are likely to be overwritten.

Works on one file at a time or all the files in a dir.
Be carefull. Like rm's default mode, it doesn't prompt for confirmation.

The files can also be downloaded as a tarball:
