replicate n x is a list of length n with x the value of every element. It is an instance of the more general Data.List.genericReplicate, in which n may be of any integral type.

drop n xs returns the suffix of xs after the first n elements, or [] if n > length xs:
> drop 6 "Hello World!" == "World!"
> drop 3 [1,2,3,4,5] == [4,5]
> drop 3 [1,2] == []
> drop 3 [] == []
> drop (-1) [1,2] == [1,2]
> drop 0 [1,2] == [1,2]
It is an instance of the more general Data.List.genericDrop, in which n may be of any integral type.

take n, applied to a list xs, returns the prefix of xs of length n, or xs itself if n > length xs:
> take 5 "Hello World!" == "Hello"
> take 3 [1,2,3,4,5] == [1,2,3]
> take 3 [1,2] == [1,2]
> take 3 [] == []
> take (-1) [1,2] == []
> take 0 [1,2] == []
It is an instance of the more general Data.List.genericTake, in which n may be of any integral type.

count n p parses n occurrences of p in sequence. A list of results is returned.

replicateM n act performs the action n times, gathering the results.

The intersperse function takes an element and a list and `intersperses' that element between the elements of the list. For example,
> intersperse ',' "abcde" == "a,b,c,d,e"

The genericReplicate function is an overloaded version of replicate, which accepts any Integral value as the number of repetitions to make.

asTypeOf is a type-restricted version of const. It is usually used as an infix operator, and its typing forces its first argument (which is usually overloaded) to have the same type as the second.

Evaluates its first argument to head normal form, and then returns its second argument as the result.

Constant function.
