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!
