You should say where you got the file, and explain what "without
success" means. Also, it's relevant which version of GHC you're using
(assuming you're using GHC). I googled and downloaded this file


I can successfully load it in both ghc-7.0.4 and ghc-7.4.1 by saying

  ghci -XHaskell98 Stdm.lhs

The -XHaskell98 specifies that the file is written in Haskell98 rather
than the more recent Haskell2010 standard. If you're using an older
ghc version (ghc-6.12.3, for example), this flag isn't required.
