As an explanation of why you got a slightly terse initial answer from 
Michael... when I read your question, I was tempted to answer but 
realized that a complete answer to "what does the 0x8000 do?" would take 
several pages... Michael realized that, too, hence his "learn C" answer 
-- he's not exactly the wordy type ;-).
