{- | The character type 'Char' is an enumeration whose values represent
Unicode (or equivalently ISO\/IEC 10646) characters (see
<http://www.unicode.org/> for details).  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'.

To convert a 'Char' to or from the corresponding 'Int' value defined
by Unicode, use 'Prelude.toEnum' and 'Prelude.fromEnum' from the
'Prelude.Enum' class respectively (or equivalently 'ord' and 'chr').

-- | A fixed-precision integer type with at least the range @[-2^29 .. 2^29-1]@.
-- The exact range for a given implementation can be determined by using
-- 'Prelude.minBound' and 'Prelude.maxBound' from the 'Prelude.Bounded' class.
data Int = I# Int#

-- | Single-precision floating point numbers.
-- It is desirable that this type be at least equal in range and precision
-- to the IEEE single-precision type.
data Float = F# Float#

-- to the IEEE double-precision type.

{- |
A value of type @'IO' a@ is a computation which, when performed,
does some I\/O before returning a value of type @a@.

There is really only one way to \"perform\" an I\/O action: bind it to
@Main.main@ in your program.  When your program is run, the I\/O will
be performed.  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@.

'IO' is a monad, so 'IO' actions can be combined using either the do-notation
or the '>>' and '>>=' operations from the 'Monad' class.

-- | A data constructor used to box up all unlifted equalities
-- The type constructor is special in that GHC pretends that it
