    Default need a bump in the right direction

    if i have 2 sets of coords, say 50,50 and 100,100.
    and then an array of square shaped obstacles between the two points
    for (int i = 0; i < arrayOfStuffInTheWay.size(); i++) {
       int x = arrayOfStuffInTheWay.get(i).getX();
       int y = arrayOfStuffInTheWay.get(i).getY();
       int width = arrayOfStuffInTheWay.get(i).getWidth();
       int height = arrayOfStuffInTheWay.get(i).getHeight();
    if (theBounds of the object are touch the coordinates of the line){
       //compare the range between x+width to the line
       //compare the range between y+height to the line
       // then do some logic and return true or false if there is a line of sight obstruction
    i guess i need to know how to get the line .. and get it efficiently. thanks for any input u can give in advance
