Functional Programming Tools: reduce

# "reduce(function, sequence)" returns a single value constructed by calling the 
# binary function function on the first two items of the sequence, then on the 
# result and the next item, and so on. For example, to compute the sum of the numbers 
# 1 through 10:

def add(x,y): return x+y

print reduce(add, range(1, 11))
