NAME

look - find lines in a sorted list

SYNOPSIS

look [ -df ] string [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION

Look uses a binary search against a sorted file to print out all lines that begin with the given string. It does make use of Perl's use locale pragma.

The -d and -f options affect comparisons as in sort(1):

d

`Dictionary' order: only non-alphanumerics and underscores participate in comparisons.

f

Fold. Upper case letters compare equal to lower case.

If no file is specified, /usr/dict/words (or /usr/share/dict/words if the former is missing) is assumed with a collating sequence -df.

/usr/dict/words

/usr/share/dict/words
