Drawing a line using DDA(Digital Differential Analyzer) Algorithm

DDA Algorithm
The Digital Differential Analyzer DDA is a scan conversion line algorithm based on calculating either the difference of y or x ie ?y or ?x. The pixel positions are calculated initially- uses raster characteristics so that appropriate increments are applied in the x or y direction to step to pixel positions along the line path.
