It is not the first time I see "memoizing" (or variants, like "memoize").
As a non-native English speaker, I would rather use "memorizing" or
The Merriam-Webster dictionnary ( doesn't seem to know this word
either. On-line technical dictionaries (I checked TechEncyclopedia,
Webopedia and WhatIs) ignore it too.
So, out of curiosity, is it:
- a common mistyping, like typing "your" instead of "you're"?
- a word so new that M-W doesn't know it yet?
- a computer science word, needing a good specialized dictionnary?
