Simple implementation of a Point to Line distance algorithm. The algorithm also calculates the location of the closest point on the line.

I needed an algorithm like this for one of my projects and coded a small proof of concept that might be helpful for others. The code is not 100% optimized and not documented at all. But I'll think it will be fairly easy to understand.

If you have any improvements of this code please send it to me!!!
