Passes or rounds?

I've just done a wipe using PRNG with 10 rounds, but all the talk on the forums is of passes. What's the difference between passes and rounds?

I'm after a level of security that would beat Encase and other data recovery tools of that ilk ... would a 10-round PRNG wipe be 'probably' sufficient for this or is it nowhere near good enough?

Thanks in advance for your help :)

Rounds are the number of times that a method is repeated.

Methods are composed of passes.
