I get what you are trying to do, but the REPL really doesn't like spaces between String and . and fromChar.
Just remove the extra space, and the reader will see the difference.

Also, don't use "something", pick a character, such as 'M', which will be converted into a string, and work in the repl.
something doesn't exist.
