    Hello,

    Is it possible to read back a program which is stored in a pic 16f72 to get its code?? By any circuits or anything??

    If code protection isn't enabled, you can read the hex file, then view the disassembled output. Variable names, functions, etc don't come back in the form they were written depending on optimizations made, though.
