L112 is a composite conduit, one of the original sixteen Herschel conduits, discovered by Dave Buckingham in July 1996. It is made up of two elementary conduits, HLx53B and BFx59H. After 112 ticks, it produces a Herschel turned 90 degrees counterclockwise at (12, -33) relative to the input. Its recovery time is 61 ticks; this can be reduced to 58 ticks by removing the output glider, either with a specialized eater (as in the original true p59 gun), or with a sparker as in most of the Quetzal guns. It can be made Spartan by replacing the aircraft carrier with an eater 1.

In the pattern shown in the infobox, a ghost Herschel marks the output location.

By removing the eater 1/block constellation on the bottom right, L112 can dependently reflect gliders by 90° and 180° (leaving a block that the next Herschel's spark in the loop can delete), as used in the large quetzal guns. It can also dependently act as a G-to-H when a loaf (or boat), block and snake/eater 1 is added.

  • 1. Glider reflects by 180°
  • 2. Glider reflects by 90°
  • 3. Glider is converted into Herschel with the addition of a loaf, block and eater 1 (RF28B + BFx59H)

P.S. in the LifeViwewer, the second example's Herschel collides with the block, but in an actual loop, it is the first example's "next" Herschel ni the loop that will delete this block.
