|LOOK(1)||General Commands Manual||LOOK(1)|
] string [
lookutility displays any lines in file which contain string as a prefix. As
lookperforms a binary search, the lines in file must be sorted. If file is not specified, the file /usr/share/dict/words is used. Only alphanumeric characters are compared and the case of alphabetic characters is ignored. The options are as follows:
lookutility exits 0 if one or more lines were found and displayed, 1 if no lines were found, or >1 if an error occurred. grep(1), sort(1)
-doption was specified. This was incorrect and the current man page matches the historic implementation.
lookcommand appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX.
