Let's notify the maintainer to use an ordinary minus sign:


my "scan" program (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/scan) reports:

Ranges.hs:12:9: undesirable character '\t'
Ranges.hs:12:51: undesirable character '\226'
Ranges.hs:12:52: undesirable character '\128'
Ranges.hs:12:53: undesirable character '\147'

Cheers Christian
