When you say you want to "create a line" what do you mean?
Do you want to
- create a line in data as a set of points(at what precision?)
- plot or draw a line on screen (with axes?)
- build a mathematical model of a line?
Checking distances/intersections etc only requires the math model. But
if you want to visualise it you may prefer a combination of all three.
We need a bit more detail about what you are expecting as a result.
The three options above all have solutions that are potentially
very different.
