Loading Modules into GHCi

Before we move on, let's see how we can load modules we create into GHCi, so that we can use any functions we define. We create a new file, e.g. Practice.hs, and define our module in there (remember, the module name should match the file name), and define our triple function from before:
module Practice where
triple x = 3 * x
We can now launch GHCi from the terminal and load our module using its relative file path using :load, making the function available for use:
$ ghci
GHCi, version 8.10.2: :? for help
{- Assuming our Practice.hs file is in the same directory from
which we launched GHCi -}
ghci> :load Practice.hs
[1 of 1] Compiling Practice ( Practice.hs, interpreted )
Ok, one module loaded.
*Practice> triple 3
