NAME
     look - find words in the system dictionary  or  lines  in  a
     sorted list

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/bin/look [-d] [-f] [-tc] string [filename]

DESCRIPTION
     The look command consults a sorted filename and  prints  all
     lines that begin with string.

     If    no     filename    is     specified,     look     uses
     /usr/share/lib/dict/words with collating sequence -df.

     look limits the length of a word to search for to 256  char-
     acters.

OPTIONS
     -d       Dictionary order. Only letters,  digits,   TAB  and
              SPACE characters are used in comparisons.



     -f       Fold case. Upper case letters are not distinguished
              from lower case in comparisons.



     -tc      Set termination character. All  characters  to  the
              right of c in  string are ignored.



FILES
     /usr/share/lib/dict/words       spelling list
