ARGUMENTS: <spell [args]> 

The "cast" command casts a non-combat spell (see the help files for particular
spells for information on their usage, ie "help spell invisibility") from a
spellbook in your inventory (the book does not need to be readied).  The "cast"
command attempts to locate the spell in all spellbooks you might have readied.

The argument is spell you wish to cast.  See the "spells" command, or the help
file for your class (ie "help class mage") for a list of the spells you have.  
Some spells take optional argument(s)--these should follow the name of the


cast wall of fire
