Starting from the beginning, my original problem is to create the string:
"File creation date: " ++ currentSystemDate ++ " by MyCompany"
to obtain the string
"File creation date: 2010-06-24 by MyCompany"
Probably this is really trivial, but I'm a real beginner in Haskell and this seems to me a big problem.
