 for the literature
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  the literature
   n.
  
      Computer-science journals and other publications, vaguely gestured at to
      answer a question that the speaker believes is trivial. Thus, one might
      answer an annoying question by saying ?It's in the literature.? Oppose {
      Knuth, which has no connotation of triviality.
