Is "flash light" correct? Or should it be "flashlight"? Is "flash light" the light that comes in a flash. And is "flashlight" a torch?

Thanks.

In addition to what Region says, "flash light" doesn't really mean anything--it certainly does not mean a light that comes in a flash. A native speaker would describe that by saying "a flash of light" or a "flashing light" if it came more than once.

@Setanta,
And if someone is exposing himself, but only partially, it might be flash lite.
