Description Jong Bae KO 2007-03-28 03:39:58 UTC
Description of problem:
"grep -i aardvark /usr/share/dict/words" finds "aardvark" and "aardvarks",
but "look aardvark" returns nothing.
"look zebra" returns many matches.

The problem seems to be that /usr/share/dict/words is not sorted in the order
expected by "look".
