Description

http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/7.0.3/html/users_guide/faster.html section “How do I find out a function's strictness?”

The one inaccuracy I noticed is that we no longer output P for primitive (primitive types seem to be confusingly given L!); I believe the docs are a hold-over from the old strictness analyzer. Someone better acquainted with the strictness analyzer should give it a lookover.

Some more examples would be helpful as well, especially for product types (e.g. a strict tuple with lazy fields).
