Subject: [geometry] calculating the projection of a point on a line

Dear Geometers,
I have looked, but I cannot find an algorithm (in BG) to calculate the
projection of a point on a line, as per the explanation here:
http://cs.nyu.edu/~yap/classes/visual/03s/hw/h2/math.pdf
Have I simply missed it or is there a simple combination of algorithms to
calculate it?
So far I have been rolling my own linear algebra computation as per that
paper, but I was hoping to simplify the code and use something built in.
Thanks, cheers.
Jeremy
