I found the examples included in the source code very helpful.
I think the RedBook directory contains the most examples.
If you want to know the modules a package exports you can use, e.g..
$ ghc-pkg describe OpenGL
maintainer: sven.panne at aedion.de
These are the full names of the modules, you have to use to import
them. For GLUT there's one module that re-exports all others, iirc.
