1.4 Basic Commands

1.4.1 Looking

The look command (abbreviated `l') shows you your surroundings. Typing look by itself shows you the room you are in. You automatically see the description of a room upon entering it; typing look shows the same description again (it may have scrolled off your screen). Typing

    look <object>


    l <object>

...shows you the description of <object>. The lookat command does a possessive look, showing something that is held by someone else. The syntax is lookat <object>'s <thing>.

    lookat jessy's ring
