there have a lot of situation we need memorize intermediate computation value. 
and use in further.
like this, compute nth fib question.
So,how memorize it?

i have an ugly solution.it used HashTable for memorization.

fib n table
 | n==1 =1
 | n==2 =1
 | otherwise =
  case lookup table of
    Just v   ->(v,table)
    Nothing ->let (v,table') = fib (n-1) table in
                   let ( v',table'')= v + fib(n-2) table' in

i am an beginner come from imperative programming language.
so fib memorize version program hurt my brain ... particular in Nothing branches.
so do you have some good idea
