in reply to NIST-DaDS

I agree totaly with Zecho.

Its not good for Perl to have all of the algorithm snippets easily available on the web be written in C and Pascal. I have often scoured the web looking for Perl snippets of a given algorithm with all of the fancy error checking and optimizations that good Perl programers are good at that you don't get if you just transliterate the C or Pascal, usually to no avail. Even very common algorithms like general sorts and "towers-of-hanoi"-type snippits can be powerful tools for teaching Perl.

I wonder how many of the algorithms listed at the NIST page above actually have existing code on PM that could be linked to. . . . .
