Program (code) is not of great value outside computer, except examples which usually belong to the documentation. I will not buy a book with printed source code of Linux kernel, even if it will be very cheap :)

Documentation and some other kinds of data can be used without computer. Documentation can be printed and sold as books. One does not need a computer to read a printed documentation.

There are kinds of files (documentation, images, sounds) which can be used outside the cramped computer scope.

There is a whole various world outside the computer!
