Since beginning using Sage, I have often been in the position that I need to find a specific algorithm for solving some problem. I might or might not already know that Sage has _some_ algorithm for doing it, but I want this one (for some reason). Is there an index or an easy way to search for this? The times I have tried using the search bar of sagemath.org, it has mostly been irrelevant posts, while a search on google like "<algorithm-name> site:sagemath.org" can give a bit as it also searches through the comments of the source code; but this is not very user-friendly, and it can take some time from finding some comment in a file, to know how to actually invoke specifically that code.
An example of this is the Berlekamp-Zassenhaus algorithm for factorising polynomials over integers.jsrnThu, 19 Aug 2010 03:49:49 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7580/
