<programming> The multiple kilograms of macerated, pounded, steamed,
bleached, and pressed trees that accompany most modern software or hardware
products (see also tree-killer). Hackers seldom read paper documentation and
(too) often resist writing it; they prefer theirs to be terse and on-line. A
common comment on this predilection is "You can't grep dead trees".
See drool-proof paper, verbiage, treeware.
