 I think that the 23512 is a EEPROM and the 27512 would be a normal
EPROM. The biggest issue is what to do with the programming voltage
and any auto type sensing. Most newer programmers have a way to
set the programming voltage to 5V instead of what ever. They also
usually include some way to turn off the auto sense that would otherwise
bring one of the pins to a higher than normal voltage. If those
two conditions are met, you should be able to read the 23512.
 If there are issues with the select lines being inverted between
the two, I often stack two machine pin sockets. I then can cross
wire what I want by either popping out an unwanted pin or breaking
off the tip of one that I don't want to have connected.
 For these two parts, I believe that the address and data line
 Note that many programmers keep the programming voltage high,
even when reading since the newer EPROMs are strobed with a
TTL level input for programming. So look out for this. Even if
you don't tell it to program, it can have an unexpected high
voltage on one of the pins.
