Hi Tony
 I think you are right about the 23xxx being mask versions.
The problem with the newer EPROM parts is that they do not
require pulsing of the programming voltage. Many programmers
simply leave the programming voltage high while reading or
verifying. This is real bad for mask parts. Also, most mask
parts use the programming voltage pin as another select.
This means that it may need to be in the opposite state that,
even a programmer that allows setting of the program voltage,
may not be in the right state to read.
 Also, I think this fellow is off the list and doesn't realize
that he is talking to a list. I suspect he is missing our
conversations related to his issue.
