Examining Objects

ColdCore gives you five ways of looking at objects: look, @examine, @show, @display, and @dump.
 look <object>
is the most frequently used, and just gives a Description of the object.
 @examine <object>
gives a little more information about an object, including its Object Name, when it was created, its Manager, Parents, Description, and other goodies.
 @show <object>
displays all the object variables for the given object.
 @display <object>
Levi says "@display is like a configurable @show". I need to play more.
 @dump <object>
dumps out a listing for every Method of the object.
