The look command searches through the system dictionary or
lines in some other sorted list for a word. I often use look to
check my spelling of a word. Suppose I want to know if inoculate
is spelled correctly. I would type look inoculate. If
inoculate is in the system dictionary (which it is) it is
echoed to the terminal, and I know that the spelling is correct.
If it is not in the system dictionary, it
is not echoed to the terminal.
(This command is not available on all systems.)
