The fixity of (binary) operators operators can be specified using the following syntax. There are three kinds of fixity, non-, left- and right-associativity (infix, infixl, and infixr, respectively).

  infix  n op
  infixl n op
  infixr n op

Here n is a number [0..] indicating the operator's precedence and op an operator (simply a function), for example of the form _*_. A higher number means the precedence is higher, i.e. the operator binds more strongly than an operator with a lower numeric value.
