34.SH DESCRIPTION
35.I saferm
36is a file removal program which can be used running as root to safely
37remove and optionally zero files or directories from world-writable
38directories, such as /tmp.  It will refuse to change directories
39through symbolic links, and it will not zero files that have more than
40one hard link.  Files are zeroed only when the
41.B \-z
42option is specified.  If a directory is being removed, the
43.B \-d
44flag must be specified.  The
45.B \-q
46flag suppresses the error message for the case when a directory
47cannot be removed because it is not empty.
