The front end tokens are documented at

  http://documents.wolfram.com/v5/FrontEnd/FrontEndTokens/

However, if you go to the Input Menu I cannot see any documentation for 
this command.

If you open the menu setup file, MenuSetup.tr, you will find the 
following code for doing what you want:

      Item["Convert Automatic Objects to Literal", 
         FrontEndExecute[{FrontEnd`NotebookReleaseHold[
            FrontEnd`NotebookSelection[FrontEnd`InputNotebook[]]]}]],

Cheers,
Paul
