Yes, thanks, but those internet pages don't read that well on the train to
work ;)

For example, for the brand new F# language I bought the book
http://www.amazon.com/Foundations-F-Robert-Pickering/dp/1590597575 which
covers almost everything you need to create real-world applications, from
GUIs to databases to 2D/3D graphics to custom languages. Okay, it's a bit
buggy here and there, but it's a great overview. 

Ah well, I'll abuse the printer at work to print out those internet pages
then; somehow reading from a computer screen just doesn't work for me.

Oh, Bulat's right. Also:

     GHC User's guide -- type system extensions

     GHC User's guide -- syntax extensions

Specific extensions:

    * http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/users_guide/gadt.html 

    Bang patterns

    Special primops

    Parallel Haskell

    * http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/users_guide/ffi.html

Its all there somewhere.
