In this paper, we exploit basic formal variable techniques to study certain categories of modules for an (untwisted) affine Lie algebra script G sign ̂, motivated by Chari-Pressley's work on certain integrable modules. We define and study two categories ε and C of script G sign ̂-modules using generating functions, where ε is proved to contain the well known evaluation modules and C to unify highest weight modules, evaluation modules and their tensor product modules. We classify integrable irreducible script G sign ̂-modules in categories ε and C and we determine the isomorphism classes of those irreducible modules. Finally we prove a result that relates fusion rules in the context of vertex operator algebras with integrable irreducible modules of Chari-Pressley.
