I`ve read that we say:I`ll send it to you direct"not directly why? & we say
"directly he had finished he went out "why is directly used here?
As I know the verb "send" is not a linking verb [as "be", "appear", "sound", etc]and we use it with adverbs and not adjectives.

Where have you read or found this sentence ?
In the second sentence " directly he.....", it might be understood :as soon as he.. or "when he finished, he went out", although it sounds odd to me.
I haven`t ever found such examples , so I would like to hear some experts` opinions.
All the best
