what 'algorithm' ?   there's no fixed correlation between program name 
and package name.

for example, the package providing 'iostat' and 'sar' is called sysstat.

And, some packages change their names in different major releases of an 
OS.  Some packages are dropped entirely in new releases, and other 
packages are added.
