Rajouter = to add?

I always thought "ajouter" meant to add. Then an article said rajoutez with the suggested definition of add... I've never heard that word before. is it slang or something?

Interesting tid-bit: In English, we have the prefix "re-" which means that you do something over again, but it's usage is pretty limited. In French, however, this prefix is used a lot. (It may appear in four different forms: re-, ré-, r- or res-).
