consider the following example:

\documentclass[a4paper,final]{report}

\usepackage{cleveref}
\usepackage{algorithmic}

\Crefname{ALC@unique}{Line}{Lines}

\begin{document}

Tests: 

\begin{algorithmic}[1]
\REQUIRE $x$ and $y$
\ENSURE $|x + y|$
\STATE $z = x + y$
\IF{$z<0$}
\RETURN $-z$\label{l1}
\ELSE
\RETURN $z$
\ENDIF
\end{algorithmic}

cref\{l1\}: \cref{l1}, ref\{l1\}: \ref{l1}

\begin{algorithmic}[1]
\REQUIRE $x$ and $y$
\ENSURE $|x - y|$
\STATE $z = x - y$
\IF{$z<0$}
\RETURN $-z$\label{l2}
\ELSE
\RETURN $z$
\ENDIF
\end{algorithmic}

cref\{l2\}: \cref{l2}, ref\{l2\}: \ref{l2}

\end{document}

This will output (apart from the pseudocode):

cref{l1}: line 3, ref{l1} 3

cref{l2}: line 9, ref{l2} 3

As you will notice, \cref{l2} returns an incorrect line number. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

cleveref only claims to support a limited number of packages and algorithmic is not on that list. However, adding \setcounter{ALC@unique}{0} after the beginning of your algorithmic enviroments fixes the problem, i.e., writing

\begin{algorithmic}[1]
\setcounter{ALC@unique}{0}
\REQUIRE $x$ and $y$

etc.

I suggest you wrap this up in a new environment, so that you do not have to write it each time.

    Actually, cleveref 0.18.5 claims to support the algorithms package, which ships the algorithmic package. But you are correct - it is currently not supported, but will be fixed with 0.18.6 (in development). For now only algorithmicx is supported. – Karalga Aug 6 '12 at 13:52
