Prelude> ["bunny", "rabbit"] >>= generation ["bunny","bunny","bunny","rabbit","rabbit","rabbit"]
Each element gives rise to three copies of itself. The order of the copies matches the order of the original elements.
themselvesTimes :: [Int] -> [Int] themselvesTimes ns = ns >>= \n -> replicate n n
(<*>) for lists takes a list of functions and a list of values that can be passed to the functions. It then applies each function to all of the values, and gives back all results thus generated in a single list.
fs <*> xs = [ f x | f <- fs, x <- xs ]
Note that the order of the generators matters when writing the list comprehension above. To see the difference, try both
(\fs xs -> [ f x | f <- fs, x <- xs ]) [(2*),(3*)] [1,2] and
(\fs xs -> [ f x | x <- xs, f <- fs ]) [(2*),(3*)] [1,2] in GHCi.
