Yes, and I agree the name is misleading. Does anyone have a
suggestion of a better name?

That's not right - don't know how that error happened, perhaps a
toy-version of the library was loaded. Here is a copy paste of the
type signature and some uses:
Prelude Text.PrettyPrint> :i octPad
octPad :: (Integral a) => a -> Int -> Doc
Prelude Text.PrettyPrint> octPad 10 2
Prelude Text.PrettyPrint> hexPad 133 3
Prelude Text.PrettyPrint> hexPad 133 2
Prelude Text.PrettyPrint> hexPad 133 1
