Distance between a line and a point

I'm programming in VB .Net but this might be more a trigonometry problem. i've been searching every maths book i can find and i haven't found anything i can use with VB.
So, what i need to know is how to calculate the distance, between a line (defined by two points) and a third point, to that line (the lesser distance)


My thanks in advanced
