List index (subscript) operator, starting from 0. It is an instance of the more general Data.List.genericIndex, which takes an index 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.

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 genericIndex function is an overloaded version of !!, which accepts any Integral value as the index.

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.

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.

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

Constant function.

The non-overloaded version of insert.

When called, trace outputs the string in its first argument, before returning the second argument as its result. The trace function is not referentially transparent, and should only be used for debugging, or for monitoring execution. Some implementations of trace may decorate the string that's output to indicate that you're tracing. The function is implemented on top of putTraceMsg.

foldl, applied to a binary operator, a starting value (typically the left-identity of the operator), and a list, reduces the list using the binary operator, from left to right:
> foldl f z [x1, x2, ..., xn] == (...((z `f` x1) `f` x2) `f`...) `f` xn
The list must be finite.

A strict version of foldl.

foldr, applied to a binary operator, a starting value (typically the right-identity of the operator), and a list, reduces the list using the binary operator, from right to left:
> foldr f z [x1, x2, ..., xn] == x1 `f` (x2 `f` ... (xn `f` z)...)

The genericDrop function is an overloaded version of drop, which accepts any Integral value as the number of elements to drop.

The genericTake function is an overloaded version of take, which accepts any Integral value as the number of elements to take.

Append two lists, i.e.,
> [x1, ..., xm] ++ [y1, ..., yn] == [x1, ..., xm, y1, ..., yn]
> [x1, ..., xm] ++ [y1, ...] == [x1, ..., xm, y1, ...]
If the first list is not finite, the result is the first list.

forms a complex number from its real and imaginary rectangular components.

The fromMaybe function takes a default value and and Maybe value. If the Maybe is Nothing, it returns the default values; otherwise, it returns the value contained in the Maybe.

The deleteFirstsBy function takes a predicate and two lists and returns the first list with the first occurrence of each element of the second list removed.

The intersectBy function is the non-overloaded version of intersect.
