Or: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/papers/core.ps.gz
Note that External Core, as specified in this paper, is similar to but
not entirely the same as the version of Core that GHC prints out for
debugging purposes.

GHC 6.10 will be able to produce External Core with a flag again, and
at that point Section 5.15 of the users' guide will point to a new
version of the documentation -- so if you upgrade to 6.10 when it is
released and are still poring over Core code then, be sure to get the
new documentation.
