I was wondering if wipe can run on an IBM AIX server (RS/6600) platform? We are looking at using it in the office.

Well, I got wipe-2.2.0 to compile under AIX 5.1 using GCC 4.0.1 after making basically mechanical source changes to eliminate "//"-style comments and adding -D_POSIX_SOURCE -D_XOPEN_SOURCE -D_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED -D_ALL_SOURCE to the command lines so that various required definitions actually got made. Of course, since 5.1 doesn't have /dev/random I haven't been able to run it yet. :-)
I would imagine that 5.2 and later wouldn't be a problem, and some kludging on 5.1 and earlier to use something else than /dev/*random to seed the PRNG would make it usable there too.
