Exactly! I don't want to "make lines between points"..I want to DRAW
the line as it goes. There is a big difference, perhaps I have not
explained it well enough. The ACT of drawing the "life" of the line
is what i need, not connecting the dots.

In Illustrator, if you are just wanting to make straight (absolutely
straight) line segments, you can use the pen tool and make lines
between clicked/tapped points. Is this not what you are wanting to do?
