         look in <container> [on] <person>
         look [at] <person>|<object>|<mob>|<direction>

   Look, with no argument, displays the room name and description.  It also
displays any persons, objects or mobiles in the room that are visible to you.

   Look in <container> lists out the contents of a container that are visible
to you if the container is open.  You can do this to other people's
containers, too, but they probably won't approve of your doing so.

   If the object is an open container, looking into it shows the .INSIDE extra
description, if it exists.
%% -21

   Look [at] <object>|<person>|<mob> displays a description of the object,
person, or mob specified.  The 'at' is optional.
