LineType2d.DistanceBounded Method

This method calculates the distance to a point Pt . The difference to Distance is:
If the normalprojection from the Point Pt is outside of PQ then the distance to the Point P resp Q is taken and Lam is 0 resp 1. The parameter Lam can be taken to calculate the nearest point of the LineType, which is also returned by the outvalue Nearest
