Update docs for partial type signatures (#12365)

Authored by thomasw on Jul 19 2016, 10:09 AM.


  • Update the sample error messages. The messages have been reworded and reformatted since GHC 7.10.
  • Mention TypeApplications in "Where can they occur?"
  • The name of a named wild card is no longer used in the name of a resulting type variable. Before: _foo => w_foo, now: _foo => t or a.
