== Printing a string ==
 
Strings can be output in a number of different ways.
 
<haskell>
 
 
Prelude> putStr "Foo"
 
Prelude> putStr "Foo"
 
FooPrelude>
 
FooPrelude>
 
</haskell>
 
</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>
+
| printing a string with a newline character
Prelude> putStr "Foo\n"
+
| [http://haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/base/Prelude.html#v%3AputStrLn putStrLn]
Foo
+
|<haskell>
</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"
 
Prelude> putStrLn "Foo"
 
Foo
 
Foo
  +
Prelude>
 
</haskell>
 
</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>
+
| reading a string
Prelude> print "Foo"
+
| [http://haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/libraries/base/Prelude.html#v%3AgetLine getLine]
"Foo"
+
|<haskell>
  +
Prelude> getLine
  +
Foo bar baz --> "Foo bar baz"
 
</haskell>
