A function to check whether two points lie within some distance in every dimension.

1 | ```
DistanceCheck(point1, point2, dist, dimensions=length(point1))
``` |

`point1` |
An n dimensional vector representing point1. |

`point2` |
An n dimensional vector representing point2. |

`dist` |
A floating point number representing the maximum distance in each dimension allowed for points to be considered equivalent. |

`dimensions` |
An integer representing the number of dimensions being checked. This defaults to the length of the first vector. |

A boolean value is returned. The value is true if the points are within the distance in every dimension and false if not.
