getItemFile :: IO String

getItemFile test = 


                                                test <- readFile "input.txt"

                                                return test


this is the program I did to take a file and get all the data from that file
to a string. 


Can someone help me. 


I get this error


Type error in explicitly typed binding

*** Term           : getItemFile

*** Type           : a -> IO [Char]

*** Does not match : IO String


What I need is to get the file to a string and then get it to a tuple by
checking each places where the file contain a blank space


Please help me
