look - Use vision to inspect oneself or one's environment.

Description

Look at the surrounding room, at an item, or player character. Look shows the verbose description of the room, item or player. Looking at containers, like bags or chests, also shows the contents of the container. When looking at an item, look also shows the estimated weight of the item.

Look does not work when one has the condition of blindness.

It is very common to make a shortcut command for looking at objects, like command l look at, so one could use l <object> instead of look at <object>.
