    What's the meaning of the underlined?

    Dear all,

    What's the meaning of the underlined?
    Thanks in advance.

    I got out of the Cortina. “Lindholm,” he said in the formal Swedish manner, and stuck out his hand which I pumped up and down once in the way which protocol dictates.

    It simply means that they shook hands. Whatever etiquette this person believes in dictates that it is gentlemanly to only go up and down once during a hand shake.
