1. The $ is just a sample prompt, a convention used to indicate what
you should typed.
2. The command is for a shell (CMD or COMMAND), not GHCi.
3. The command is wrong! for Windows it should be "ghc -o hello.exe
hello.hs". Assuming you aren't knowledgable yet on the differences
between Windows and Unix programming environments, it might be a good
idea to pick another tutorial.
