Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This package provides two environments, "algorithmic" and "algorithm", 
which are designed to be used together but may be used separately. The 
"algorithmic" environment provides an environment for describing algorithms 
and the "algorithm" environment provides a "float" wrapper for algorithms 
(implemented using "algorithmic" or some other method at the author's 
option).  The reason that two environments are provided is to allow the 
author maximum flexibility.
