I’ve updated my collection of Mac OS X command line tools with improvements to the trash tool:

  • trash can now list trash contents across all volumes (with a disk usage total) as well as empty the trash (including a secure empty option; both emptying operations require confirmation).

Note: Obviously, the new version of trash is now destructive. I have tested and use this myself, but I cannot guarantee it won’t securely erase your entire hard drive if it encounters some odd edge case and I cannot be held responsible for that. So, use at your own risk and keep backups!

Go download them all (clipcat, eject, swuser, and trash) or get the source code on github!
