I'm sorry, but I can't understand your question.  Do you want to
interface with C or another language using the FFI interface?  Or are
you asking about a feature of pure Haskell code?  If you're asking
about pure Haskell, I'm going to guess the answer is "you can't", or
use eg. IORef, MArray, for impure types.  (But I discourage their use)

If you give us more information about what problem you are trying to
solve, we can be of more help.
