I am looking for a reference source for how companies price manuals, and typical prices.For example, if a manual cost $20,000 to produce, how is it's price to the customer handled. Even if it is a "give-away" as everybody seems to indicate, the price has got to be figured into the price of the overall product by marketing and the bean counters. Is the manual priced at $100 with a breakeven at 200 units? Or is $50 a typical price? Or is it by the page?

Who knows??? I need info, please.
