runes

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).
