Constrained Min, nonlinear

Hi,
I'm not yet quite familiar with all Mathematica features (who is?) and I'm looking for a solution of a rather simple problem. I can easily solve it by hand but I wanna know how to do this with Mathematica. Here it is:
Where is f(x,y)=x^2+y^2 minimal, if x and y are constrained to abs(x+y)=1 ?
Is it possible to solve this without programming?
Please answer via email, thanks in advance, Stefan.
