I have a code that reads a string from a list of CChar's

> shortName = map (toEnum.fromIntegral) shortname

When I have a turkish character like  the interpreter will:

StockList> a <- readStockInfo h
[66,105,108,105,-2,105,109,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32,32]
StockList> a
*** Exception: Prelude.chr: bad argument

The problem is the 66 in the beginning of the list. I'm not giving the entire 
code, it's not needed...

What should I be using to work with such strings?

Thanks,
