Long:
Code:
dwipe_pattern_t patterns [] =
{
  {  1, &dod[0] }, /* Pass 1: A random character.               */
  {  1, &dod[1] }, /* Pass 2: The bitwise complement of pass 1. */
  { -1, ""      }, /* Pass 3: A random stream.                  */
  {  1, &dod[3] }, /* Pass 4: A random character.               */
  {  1, &dod[4] }, /* Pass 5: A random character.               */
  {  1, &dod[5] }, /* Pass 6: The bitwise complement of pass 5. */
  { -1, ""      }, /* Pass 7: A random stream.                  */
  {  0, NULL   }
};
Short:
Code:
dwipe_pattern_t patterns [] =
{
  {  1, &dod[0] }, /* Pass 1: A random character.               */
  {  1, &dod[1] }, /* Pass 2: The bitwise complement of pass 1. */
  { -1, ""      }, /* Pass 3: A random stream.                  */
  {  0, NULL   }
};
[/code]

Then what is DOD?

The syslinux.cfg file has 3 different DOD types and I am just trying to see the difference between all 3 of them.

LABEL dod
KERNEL kernel.bzi
APPEND initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 init=/rc nuke="dwipe --autonuke --method dod522022m" silent

LABEL dod3pass
KERNEL kernel.bzi
APPEND initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 init=/rc nuke="dwipe --autonuke --method dod3pass" silent

LABEL dodshort
KERNEL kernel.bzi
APPEND initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 init=/rc nuke="dwipe --autonuke --method dodshort" silent

The argument of the "--method" parameter is the thing that is important here. The dod3pass and dodshort both call the DoD Short method. All other aliases call the original DoD long method.

The DoD Short method in DBAN more closely matches the current specification than the long method, which is the same as the Heidi Eraser implementation and other software products.

DCO or/and HPA support in 1.0.6

Hi,

Does the version 1.0.6 have support for detect and wipe HPA or/and DCO areas?

Kind regards
