#This class can be used to call list methods reverse/sort/extend/append/remove etc
#on list/tuple/strings. As the function of this class return the
#modified sequence instead of modifying them(that anyway it can't do)
#it may be used in map/reduce functions
#functions can be called 
#directly from module NIPSeqMethods (or whatever name u give to this file , btw NIP is not in place)
# e.g NIPSeqMethods.reverse('python')
#or user can import rquired functions e.g
#from NIPSeqMethods import reverse,intersperse,sort
