104: Secure delete items directly from the Finder
Authored by: strandbygaard on Sep 07, '05 02:54:59PM

Just wanted to add to the "runtime" discussion. Timing the command from the terminal yields the following (tiger, dual 1.8Ghz G5)

mac:/Users/Shared martin$ ls -lh test.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 martin wheel 21M Sep 7 20:45 test.zip
mac:/Users/Shared martin$ time srm -fmr test.zip

real 0m4.145s
user 0m0.048s
sys 0m0.713s

Hence neither the srm command nor using the 7-pass option seems to be causing the hold up (well, I don't experience any notiable run time using the automator workflow).

regards
