How can you determine a point is between two other points on a line segment?

Let's say you have a two dimensional plane with 2 points (called a and b) on it represented by an x integer and a y integer for each point. How can you determine if another point c is on the line segment defined by a and b? I use python most, but examples in any language would be helpful.
