Software Pricing

Hey all,
For all you software developers out there: How do you price software?
If it's a website, it's rather easy.. if it uses flash, it's the area * a certain value.. the number of pages they request.. dynamic content increases the price, etc..

However, how do you price software!?

Thanks in advance!

this is basically from a software product perspective.

but if it is a Software application in which the client will be procuring the software required to run the application(If not then add the software prices also taking from the vendors) then it will be

Function point analysis of the requirements with output in hrs * each person's $/hr which includes testing, implementation at the clients place (the expenses can be quoted seperately) + maintainance contract
