Hmm... How about just using Apple's Disk Utility app. It can erase files using either a 1/7/35 pass/re-write over data options.. 35, Guttmann method not available in this app from the description it seems but good old Disk Utility has it!

When you sell a computer, or just need to overwrite content of the drive the best option, depending on OS, i.e. 10.6 and below is to put in the install DVD and boot from that DVD run disk utility and do the erase... or

If your 10.7+ You can make a bootable dvd/usb drive to do the same with the excellent LionDiskMaker app or just boot into the recovery partition and do the same.

Unless I am missing something, you don't need to waste $7 on an app you can't demo when your default OS install has everything you need and more... and it's not via command line or anything like that. Disk Utility is a GUI easy as it comes app to work with.

Trust Apple's product or a, no offense, random developer's product to secure your files from recovery?

If I am wrong please let me know but the description just seems like a less featured Disk Utility....
