I think most of us can write a C program that can print circular lists.

I might have used the wrong word.
Can you write the NUMBER 1 on a piece of paper ?
I think you cannot. You must use some encoding for it.
The same thing with  let x = x in x.

How can one print numbers in Haskell ?
I don't understand.

When I say print (2+4), why 6 is printed and not 10 - 4 ?

Yes, but there is a little problem with 'txt<- readFile "Module.hs" and  
case lookup "a" ... '
You see, I don't know if I must print a or b.
