As far as I know there never was a "force" function in the Prelude of
Haskell98, this is probably a function specific to your tutorial, we
could help more if we had the code snippet or at least the tutorial

By the way, while it's absolutely not inappropriate to post this
question here, there is a haskell-beginner mailing list more suited to
this kind of thing (you could also get very fast and friendly help
from the #haskell channel on irc.freenode.net).
