- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
Release 3.3 is a major revision which makes the package independent from 
float.sty and solves all known conflicts with other packages (with color 
package for example!).  Moreoever all know bugs have been removed and 
also some new features added as the long awaiting auto-numbering lines 

Algorithm2e is an environment for writing algorithms.  An algorithm is 
defined as a floating object like figures.  It provides macros that allow 
you to create different sorts of key words, thus a set of predefined keyword 
is given. You can also change the typography of the keywords.  The 
environment allows you to have vertical lines delimiting block of 
instructions.  It defines also different sort of algorithms such as 
Procedure or Function allowing name of this functions to be reused in 
common text or other algorithms.
