\section[GHC.Base]{Module @GHC.Base@}
The overall structure of the GHC Prelude is a bit tricky.
a) We want to avoid "orphan modules", i.e. ones with instance
decls that don't belong either to a tycon or a class
defined in the same module
b) We want to avoid giant modules
So the rough structure is as follows, in (linearised) dependency order
GHC.Prim Has no implementation. It defines built-in things, and
by importing it you bring them into scope.
The source file is GHC.Prim.hi-boot, which is just
copied to make GHC.Prim.hi
GHC.Base Classes: Eq, Ord, Functor, Monad
Types: list, (), Int, Bool, Ordering, Char, String
Data.Tuple Types: tuples, plus instances for GHC.Base classes
GHC.Show Class: Show, plus instances for GHC.Base/GHC.Tup types
GHC.Enum Class: Enum, plus instances for GHC.Base/GHC.Tup types
Data.Maybe Type: Maybe, plus instances for GHC.Base classes
GHC.List List functions
GHC.Num Class: Num, plus instances for Int
Type: Integer, plus instances for all classes so far (Eq, Ord, Num, Show)
Integer is needed here because it is mentioned in the signature
of 'fromInteger' in class Num
GHC.Real Classes: Real, Integral, Fractional, RealFrac
plus instances for Int, Integer
Types: Ratio, Rational
plus intances for classes so far
Rational is needed here because it is mentioned in the signature
of 'toRational' in class Real
GHC.ST The ST monad, instances and a few helper functions
Ix Classes: Ix, plus instances for Int, Bool, Char, Integer, Ordering, tuples
GHC.Arr Types: Array, MutableArray, MutableVar
Arrays are used by a function in GHC.Float
GHC.Float Classes: Floating, RealFloat
Types: Float, Double, plus instances of all classes so far
This module contains everything to do with floating point.
It is a big module (900 lines)
With a bit of luck, many modules can be compiled without ever reading GHC.Float.hi
Other Prelude modules are much easier with fewer complex dependencies.

{- | The 'Monad' class defines the basic operations over a /monad/,
a concept from a branch of mathematics known as /category theory/.
From the perspective of a Haskell programmer, however, it is best to
think of a monad as an /abstract datatype/ of actions.
Haskell's @do@ expressions provide a convenient syntax for writing
monadic expressions.
Minimal complete definition: '>>=' and 'return'.
Instances of 'Monad' should satisfy the following laws:
> return a >>= k == k a
> m >>= return == m
> m >>= (\x -> k x >>= h) == (m >>= k) >>= h
Instances of both 'Monad' and 'Functor' should additionally satisfy the law:
> fmap f xs == xs >>= return . f
The instances of 'Monad' for lists, 'Data.Maybe.Maybe' and 'System.IO.IO'
defined in the "Prelude" satisfy these laws.

evaluate its argument, but we prefer to do it this way because (a)

in the case when the argument is already known to be evaluated.
