in reply to Deleting Microsoft's hidden web caches created by IE5

After reading the article, maybe just deleting the files may not be enough, since MS might wise up and just undelete the file. So what would be a good wipe routine to run on $_ before doing the unlink? Split it into characters and replace each character with 0? Ideas?

    descartes wrote an implementation of the Orange Book's shred program, which is apparently a pretty good way of truly zapping files, if it's the contents of the file you're worried about.


    print@_{sort keys %_},$/if%_=split//,'= & *a?b:e\f/h^h!j+n,o@o;r$s-t%t#u'
