[Haskell-cafe] What Functions are Standard?

I have been writing code using the docs over at
is the only comprehensive library reference I could find.
I am using some code from System.IO, supposedly from base. When I try
to build this with nhc98, it doesn't know about hGetBuf, hPutBuf, or
openBinaryFile from there or about mallocForeignPtrArray from the
Foreign.* area. But all these look standard to me.
What am I missing here? Does nhc98 really completely lack the ability
to read binary data from a file? Or where should I be finding it, and
how could I have known for myself that those particular ghc functions
were unsupported elsewhere?
