# Increase Spacing in an algorithm

Please, how can i increase spacing in an algorithm, between instruction 1 et instruction 2 ?

 \usepackage{algorithm}
\usepackage{algorithmic}
\begin{document}
\begin{algorithm}[H]
\caption{My algo}
\begin{algorithmic}[1]
\STATE instruction 1
\STATE instruction 2
\end{algorithmic}
\end{algorithm}
\end{document}


i'd like also to increase spacing between line and first instruction (see figure)

please just another question: is it possible to add the option [vlined] with

\usepackage{algorithm}
\usepackage{algorithmic} ?

set \setstretch{1.4} to any value you like

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{algorithm}
\usepackage{algorithmic}
\usepackage{setspace}
\let\Algorithm\algorithm
\renewcommand\algorithm[1][]{\Algorithm[#1]\setstretch{1.4}}

\begin{document}
\begin{algorithm}[H]
\caption{My algo}
\begin{algorithmic}[1]
\STATE instruction 1
\STATE instruction 2
\end{algorithmic}
\end{algorithm}
\end{document}

use \caption{\strut My algo} – Herbert Oct 1 '12 at 10:36
thank you for answer but i'd like have a spaing between the second line and the first instruction 1: – researcher Oct 1 '12 at 10:39
\STATE \strut instruction 1 The command \strutis the height of the character "(" but without a width. It can be used to get some more space, if needed – Herbert Oct 1 '12 at 10:49
thank you so much , my question about vlined i post it in a new question ? – researcher Oct 1 '12 at 10:52
