RTS /R-T-S/ /imp./ Acronym for `Read The Screen'. Mainly
used by hackers in the microcomputer world. Refers to what one
would like to tell the suit one is forced to explain an
extremely simple application to. Particularly appropriate when the
suit failed to notice the `Press any key to continue' prompt, and
wishes to know `why won't it do anything'. Also seen as `RTFS' in
especially deserving cases.
