Thank you! And, cool blog, BTW I see that you're an author, too, and that you have a C book. I'm using a C book by K.N. King in my courses currently. It's great but getting a little old. I'll check out your book. Perhaps I can write a review!
I like memoization a lot, so it shows up quite a bit in my book. It's my go-to technique for solving dynamic programming problems. If it ends up taking up too much stack space or is too slow then I'll switch to dynamic programming proper. But as I explain in the book, I think it's easier to get all of the indices and bounds right in a memoization version compared to a dynamic programming version. Just my opinion though!
Thanks, CodeRanch, for talking with me about my algorithms book! www.danielzingaro.com/alg
