The documentation in Criterion.Main says, in the "Benchmarking pure code" part:

The first is a function which will cause results to be evaluated to head normal form (NF):

nf :: NFData b => (a -> b) -> a -> Pure

Should this say "normal form" instead of "head normal form"? Maybe I have misunderstood the terms.
