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:

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.
