Pardon my ignorance but what is a "rangefinder lens" that is being discussed in this thread?

Thanks all for your responses - mostly a little over my head, sadly..

So, amongst all that detailed information, I've deduced that a "rangefinder lens" is not a lens capable of measuring range (duh) but simply one designed for a mirror-less camera i.e. "rangefinder camera" or even "rangefinder style" camera ... if I understand correctly.

There's a gap in my knowledge in these matters ... my first serious hobby camera was a Nikon D50 DSLR and "rangefinders" were beyond my ken and beyond my wallet.
