Description

In the following page:

http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/latest/html/users_guide/primitives.html

the documentation regarding unboxed tables mentions: "Unboxed tuples aren't really exported by GHC.Exts, they're available by default with -fglasgow-exts." However I've been told that this is an outdated method, and that "{-# LANGUAGE UnboxedTuples #-}" is the preferred way to utilize this feature. With this in mind having something along the lines of "The unboxed tuples feature can be utilized through '{-# LANGUAGE UnboxedTuples #-}'" instead.
