Description (last modified by Greg Weber)

Add the Text datatype to the language.

The text package for GHC exposes a Text datatype that represents a string.

The current String = [Char] standard has issues with

  • efficiency: there are more efficient representations than linked lists
  • correctness: for Unicode correctness, one must operate on a string as a whole rather than individual code points

see OpaqueText
