I have tried the listings package, but the question is that I can not type math equation in it. (The line number on the left start from the first line, i.e. type val is also OK for me.)

    For things like this, you might be interested in algorithm2e and/or other related pseudocode packages (algorithmicx, algpseudocode, etc.). Jan 2, 2015 at 15:12
  • @PaulGessler: Thanks, I am trying the algorithm2e package.

An attempt with algorithm2e. There's surely a better way to do the first three lines, and with the better method I bet it is possible to have them unnumbered. But anyway, my first shot (not an expert in typesetting algorithms :-)):

\usepackage{amsmath} % for \text{} in math
\usepackage{geometry} % margin adjust to fit wide comment in one line
  linesnumbered, % number lines
  noline,        % no vertical rule delimiting blocks
  noend,         % do not typeset "end" of blocks
  nofillcomment, % do not stretch comment width to fill the line
\SetKwComment{tcc}{\texttt{/*} }{ \texttt{*/}}

  {\type $\val : \real [K_{rc} \cdot r \cdot c]$}\;
  {\type $\ind : \int [K_{rc}]$}\;
  {\type $\ptr : \int [\frac{m}{r} + 1]$}\;
  \ForEach{block row $I$}{
    $i_o \leftarrow I \cdot r$ \tcc{starting row}
    Let $\hat{y} \leftarrow y_{i_{0}:(i_0)+r-1}$ \tcc{Can store in registers}
    \For{$L=\ptr [I]$ \KwTo $\ptr [I+1] - 1$}{
      $j_0 \leftarrow \ind [L] \cdot c$ \tcc{starting column}
      Let $\hat{x} \leftarrow x_{j_0:(j_0+c-1)}$ \tcc{Can store in registers}
      Let $\hat{A} \leftarrow a_{i_0:(i_o+r-1), j_0:(j_0+c-1)}$
      \tcc{$\hat{A} = \text{block of $A$ stored in $\val [(L \cdot r \cdot c) : ((L+1) \cdot r \cdot c -1)]$}$}
      Perform $r \times c$ block multiply, $\hat{y} \leftarrow \hat{y} + \hat{A} \cdot \hat{x}$
    Store $\hat{y}$
