Shortest Distance Between Two Lines in N dimensions 1.0 Description 

Description: Function uses algorithm from Dan Sunday internet site http://softsurfer.com/Archive/algorithm_01...ment_to_Segment L1, L2 includes two points in matrix of 2*n where n are dimensions (3 in 3D). d  shortest distance between two lines Pc,Qc  points where exists shortest distance d
EXAMPLE: L1=rand(2,3); L2=rand(2,3); [d Pc Qc]=distBW2lines(L1,L2)
Functions of lines L1,L2 and shortest distance line can be plotted in 3d or with minor change in 2D by removing comments sign from code at the end of the file. In some cases points Pc,Qc will not displayed accurately on line. Just change value of par parameter according to point.
