    Here's pseudocode for an insertion sort algorithm
    Code:
    INSERTION(list, left, right)
      FOR step = left, step < right, step = step + 1
        move = list[step]
        // Make room
        FOR i = step, i >= left, i = i - left
          IF move < list[i - left]
            list[i] = list[i - left]
          ELSE
            BREAK
        // Make the move
        list[i] = move;
