Problem: Polygon Representation

Hi everybody,

I've written a program where polygons are represented as a sequence
of edges and I need to generalize my representation to handle polygons
where both the angles and edge lengths could be *irrational*.  At the
moment, I'm stuck on how to do this.  I would really appreciate it if
somebody would give me an idea, suggestion, or a useful reference on
representing polygons with irrational angles and edge lengths.
