  • forkOS - forkOS does not create an OS-level thread. It creates a lightweight thread, the same as forkIO. The only difference is when you are doing FFI.
  • return - Does not return a value from a function, rather 'returns' a value into a monad. Don't know what a better name would be, though. 'monadificate'?
'seal'? 'monadify'? 'monify'? 'coat'? --Gwern 18:25, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
