== Printing a string ==
+
 
Strings can be output in a number of different ways.
+
<haskell>
+
Prelude> putStr "Foo"
+
FooPrelude>
+
</haskell>
+
As you can see, [http://haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/base/Prelude.html#v%3AputStr putStr] does not include the newline character `\n'.  We can either use putStr like this:
+
<haskell>
+
Prelude> putStr "Foo\n"
+
Foo
+
</haskell>
+
Or use [http://haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/base/Prelude.html#v%3AputStrLn putStrLn], which is already in the Standard Prelude
+
<haskell>
+
Prelude> putStrLn "Foo"
+
Foo
+
</haskell>
+
We can also use [http://haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/base/Prelude.html#v%3Aprint print] to print a string, '''including the quotation marks.'''
+
<haskell>
+
Prelude> print "Foo"
+
"Foo"
+
</haskell>
