Haskell i/o is not that complicated, and monads are used in pure
computation as well as for i/o.  Without getting technical, monads are
the bicycles that Haskell uses to get values from one place to another
in the right order.  They are scary at first, but once you get a
little practice riding them, the understanding stays with you and
makes perfect sense.
