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

   /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 (20 July 2014) :

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