[Haskell-cafe] complete documentation like the one from Java or C++

Just in case it's not what you're referring to, 
together with the Haskell report
generally does the trick for me.

Occasionally, descriptions are left out when the name of the thing
together with the type signature generally tells you what it does.
(e.g. things like "isEmptySet :: Set a -> Bool" are pretty obvious.)

If this is still not enough, then what more would you like to see? In
many places in the GHC library documentation, you'll notice references
to papers, which you might like to look up (perhaps with CiteSeer) for
more info on how things are implemented, or to other, more specific
documentation for the packages, as is the case with Parsec
(http://www.cs.uu.nl/~daan/download/parsec/parsec.html) or the FFI
