[Haskell-beginners] FRP

Hi. I'm trying to understand what Functional Reactive Programming is,
or, more properly, what distinguishes it from "regular" functional
programming, and what it would look like if I were to program in a "FRP
Style", i.e., without some mysterious FRP module hiding the details.
After reading a bunch of links and even looking at some source code I'm
still not clear on this.

If I program in an event-based style, and have data structures updating
over time, with some data structures dependent on others for their
values, and I use a functional language, is that FRP? Or is there some
essential element I'm missing here?
