Erase free disk space from the command line
Authored by: lowbatteries on Apr 24, '08 11:17:10AM

As robdew pointed out, you can do this with diskutil. A good rule of thumb is that if Disk Utility can do it, diskutil can do it.

In fact, Apple is great at letting you do anything (and more!) from the command line - for example, the 'softwareupdate' command for auto-updates.
