This set extends the ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) character set (the first 256 characters), which is itself an extension of the ASCII character set (the first 128 characters). A character literal in Haskell has type 'Char'.

It isn't possible to perform I\/O from an arbitrary function, unless that function is itself in the 'IO' monad and called at some point, directly or indirectly, from @Main.main@.

To the user, they must appear as constraints, but we cannot define them as such in Haskell. But we also cannot just define them only in GHC.Prim (like (->)), because we need a real module for them, e.g. to compile the constructor's info table. Furthermore the type of MkCoercible cannot be written in Haskell (no syntax for ~#R). So we define them as regular data types in GHC.Types, and do magic in TysWiredIn, inside GHC, to change the kind and type. -} -- | A data constructor used to box up all unlifted equalities -- -- The type constructor is special in that GHC pretends that it -- has kind (? -> ? -> Fact) rather than (* -> * -> *) data (~) a b = Eq# ((~#) a b) -- | This two-parameter class has instances for types @a@ and @b@ if -- the compiler can infer that they have the same representation.

First, as a trivial base-case: -- -- @instance a a@ -- -- Furthermore, for every type constructor there is -- an instance that allows to coerce under the type constructor.
