Welcome to TeX.sx! Please always add a full, but minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. – Martin Scharrer Jul 11 '11 at 15:20

You should define your own command for placing algorithmic content on a single line. As a suggestion, consider:

    \STATE\algorithmicfor\ {#1}\ \algorithmicdo\ {#2} \algorithmicend\ \algorithmicfor%

which prints the regular algorithmic package keywords used in the construction of a for statement (\algorithmicfor, \algorithmicdo, etc.), but does all of this in a single \STATE statement (or line).

Here is a complete minimal example illustrating the result:

enter image description here


    \STATE\algorithmicfor\ {#1}\ \algorithmicdo\ {#2} \algorithmicend\ \algorithmicfor%

    \STATE \ldots
        \STATE $\mathcal{C}_{ij}:=\mathcal{C}_{ii}\cdot\mathcal{C}_{ij}$;%
    \STATE \ldots
    \STATE \ldots

Thank you very much – Mohammad Jul 12 '11 at 14:47
A version that makes an if one one line: newcommand{\LineIf}[2]{ \State \algorithmicif\ {#1}\ \algorithmicthen\ {#2} \algorithmicend\ \algorithmicif } – dtech Sep 18 '13 at 15:19
