i'm using them right i think because it works, but my understanding is

it seems <- is used when you do things like load a file or get
arguments from outside or if you are return something from a function

these seem to take the form of something other than an internal type
like Int or String and have to be 'massaged' into use with things like
show or fromSql etc

the = is used with let and seems to work for any assignments that are

are these assessments correct?
