 for prepend
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  prepend
   /pree`pend'/, vt.
  
      [by analogy with ?append?] To prefix. As with ?append? (but not ?prefix? or
      ?suffix? as a verb), the direct object is always the thing being added and
      not the original word (or character string, or whatever). ?If you prepend a
      semicolon to the line, the translation routine will pass it through
      unaltered.?
  

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (26 July 2010) :

  prepend
  
      /pree'pend'/ (by analogy with "append") To prefix or
     add to the beginning.
