From Tapestries MUCK
If you control <object>, examine will give you a complete breakdown of all fields, flags, &c that are associated with the object.
- If the optional propdir field is supplied, then it instead lists out all the properties directly under that propdir. To list the base propdir of an object, use 'ex <object>=/'. Program-executing fields are displayed as their true text, rather than executing the program in question. If you do not control <object>, however, it prints the owner of the object in question, and, again, displays the true text of the description.
