examine <object>[=propdir]. 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.
