[Objects help] examine look

Syntax: examine 
        look in 

Examine is a shortcut for look in when trying to look more closely
at a container or a corpse.

Look will, when used without argument, show a description of the current
room, subject to the settings used in the auto list.  Look with an
argument will allow you to get more information about an object or other
character.  In addition, you can look in a direction to see what might be
waiting for you there.  And many rooms will have added descriptions which
may be viewed by looking at the objects.

Sometimes more than one item or character in the same room has matching
keywords. When this happens the syntax is:
        look 2.
        look 3.
        look .
