[Haskell-cafe] Is there a printable copy of the (GHC) library references anywhere?

You're right - if I think about it, I'm not really looking for "the
documentation", but more a paper or article which is "a tour of the
GHC standard library". That's something that would be really useful
from a beginner's POV - and would be more useful than the reference
documentation in printed form. There seems to be a lot in the standard
library, but very little in the way of pointers on how much there is
(if that makes sense...)

Anyway, thanks for getting me to clarify my thoughts - I'll see what I
can find, and maybe write up anything I discover.
