Hugs is obsolete and unmaintained, so you are unlikely to find that

ghc compiles, where Hugs is an interpreter, so it does not come with
Prelude source.

The API documentation gives me a link to
(syntax-highlighted source). Beyond that you'd need to get the source to
ghc; note that there will be three different Prelude sources (haskell98
standard, haskell2010 standard, and ghc's default behavior) and that all
three are largely built from parts imported from elsewhere.
