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. . . . .

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
