In pst-eucl, there is only one basic object : the point-node, all other
objects are define with these points-nodes : for a line you need two points.

If you want a perpendicular line to another line through a given point you must
create a point for defining the line. You can either use, depending if the point
belong to the referenced line, the orthogonal projection or the 90° rotation. For the
parallel line you can simply use the translation.

Hope this clear,
