not I/O, but IO :)

btw, i use C++ for speed-critical code (compression & encryprion) and
Haskell/GHC for everything else in my FreeArc project (it has 19k
downloads ATM). i also plan to switch to C# for GUI part since gtk2hs
provides less features, less documented, les debugged, doesn't have
IDE and my partner doesnt know Haskell :)

Best regards,
