|non-portable (GHC extensions)
The GHC.Err module defines the code for the wired-in error functions, which have a special type in the compiler (with "open tyvars").
We cannot define these functions in a module where they might be used (e.g., GHC.Base), because the magical wired-in type will get confused with what the typechecker figures out.
Used for compiler-generated error message; encoding saves bytes of string junk.
error stops execution and displays an error message.
A variant of
error that does not produce a stack trace.
