totally newbie question

okay..this is a totally newbie question i'm sure.     i tried to download
all the archived lists from ftp2.....and when i attempted to decompress them
i got "invalid data compression", so i couldnt look at the lists....

how do i go about making it so i dont have to type in the entire name of a
mob or player or object when using commands???  even is somebody could point
me in the right direction i would be most grateful.  and i really am sorry
for the "newbieness" of this question.  i have looked and looked through the
source code and cant seem to track it down to one function that parses the
commands (which i'm pretty sure it is..)

help please
