+ A custom prelude with no dependencies apart from base.
+
+ This package has the following goals:
+
+ * provide a base like sets of modules that provide a consistent set of features and bugfixes across multiple versions of GHC (unlike base).
+
+ * provide a better and more efficient prelude than base&#39;s prelude.
+
+ * be self-sufficient: no external dependencies apart from base.
+
+ * provide better data-types: packed unicode string by default, arrays.
+
+ * Better numerical classes that better represent mathematical thing (No more all-in-one Num).
+
+ * Better I/O system with less Lazy IO
+
+ * Usual partial functions distinguished through type system
