This is a consequence of bringing MIT Scheme up-to-date with respect to the current quasi-standard for list libraries, SRFI 1 <http://srfi.schemers.org/srfi-1/srfi-1.html>, which was designed after MIT Scheme's built-in list library. There is now a procedure which has the old semantics of REDUCE but with the name REDUCE-LEFT, although it's not yet in any released snapshot.

It's an annoying problem, and I have been working on a system that will eliminate this cluttering of a global environment with these overlapping names, but there are other tasks to be done first, such as preparing the C back end for release.

The functions 'reduce-right', 'fold-left' and 'fold-right' work as described in the documentation, but 'reduce' produces incorrect results.

(reduce list '() '(1 2 3 4)) => (4 (3 (2 1))
(reduce - 0 '(1 2 3 4)) => 2

whereas

(list (list (list 1 2) 3) 4) => (((1 2) 3) 4)
(- (- (- 1 2) 3) 4) => -8

It seems that 'reduce' reverses the order of its arguments in release 7.7.90.+.
