This is a Java Program to whether two lines intersect or not. The above-below primitive can be used to test whether a line intersects a line segment. It does iff one endpoint of the segment is to the left of the line and the other is to the right. Segment intersection is similar but more complicated, and we refer you to implementations described below. The decision whether two segments intersect if they share an endpoint depends upon your application and is representative of the problems of degeneracy.

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Use Above Below Primitive to Test Whether Two Lines Intersect. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.
