I was referring to an API documentation on Quarternion related stuff. I want to use the last constructor which is written "Constructor from Euler angles". The constructor itself is as below:

btQuaternion::btQuaternion ( const btScalar & yaw,
                             const btScalar & pitch,
                             const btScalar & roll   

My question is regarding the angles. Should the angles in the input argument be in degree or radian?

Radians. They are the standard, see REP 103
