Dive into perl6 and learn about the creation of a new numeric type that's been around since 1843. We'll talk about constants, customizing operators you already know, and creating some that you don't. We'll explore the history and present-day uses of quaternions, from a lonely wind-swept moor in Ireland to Gollum in Lord of the Rings.
