runes: pl.n. 1. Anything that requires heavy wizardry or
   black art to parse: core dumps, JCL commands, APL, or
   code in a language you haven't a clue how to read.  Not quite as
   bad as line noise, but close.  Compare casting the runes,
   Great Runes.  2. Special display characters (for example, the
   high-half graphics on an IBM PC).
