I still like my suggestion (in the bug report above) of:
> content <- getContents
would not print anything, but
would print. That seems reasonably intuitive to me.
I'm often annoyed by foo <- readFile printing the entire file contents
on my console. I know there is this flag to turn it off but I can never
remember what the flag is called. I have to look it up every time or
suffer pages of file content on my console.
