rainbow series

rainbow series: n. Any of several series of technical manuals
   distinguished by cover color.  The original rainbow series was the
   NCSC security manuals (see Orange Book, crayola books);
   the term has also been commonly applied to the PostScript reference
   set (see Red Book, Green Book, Blue Book, White
   Book).  Which books are meant by "`the' rainbow series"
   unqualified is thus dependent on one's local technical culture.
