Meaning of LITERATURE in English

LITERATURE

The literature. 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.
