Two-dimensional vectors.

# Special 2D vectors

# Converting between vectors and angles

direction :: R2 -> Angle Source

Compute the direction of a vector, measured counterclockwise from the positive x-axis as a fraction of a full turn. The zero vector is arbitrarily assigned the direction 0.

angleBetween :: R2 -> R2 -> Angle Source

Compute the counterclockwise angle from the first vector to the second.

fromDirection :: Angle -> R2 Source

Convert an angle into a unit vector pointing in that direction.

`perp v`

is perpendicular to and has the same magnitude as `v`

.
In particular `perp v == rotateBy (1/4) v`
