The function names in Haskell do not necessarily start with alphabets. Haskell allows us to use a combination of other characters as well. Many collections, including list, define !! as an indexing function. Snippet 11 uses this.
The function !! takes a list and an index n, and returns the nth element, starting 0. The signature of !! is (!!) :: Int -> [a] -> a.
It is important to note that an access to an indexed element in the list is not random. It is sequential and is directly proportional to the index value. Hence, care should be taken to use this function.
