I am trying to come to grips with the state monad and as a starting point I copied the some code directly from the book Learn You a Haskell for Great Good then added the type synonym for Stack
type Stack = [Int]
pop :: State Stack Int
pop = State $ \(x:xs) -> (x,xs)
push :: Int -> State Stack ()
push a = State $ \xs -> ((),a:xs)
However, attempting to load this into ghci produces the errors
stackPlay.hs:6:7: Not in scope: data constructor `State'
stackPlay.hs:9:10: Not in scope: data constructor `State'
Please excuse the cognitive deficit, but I cannot figure out why this should not work as advertised.
