[Haskell-cafe] supplying some of the arguments to a function

Warning: I just began using Haskell last week. :-)

The closest I can think of is this:

  (\x -> f x 2 3)

(assuming you want y=2, z=3)

But that's really defining a new function, so you might as well give it 
a name:

g x = f x 2 3

I'm liking currying a lot, I must admit. :-)  But the example above 
isn't currying AFAIK.
