What does PWRT represent? I don't recognize the acronym but I became
familiar with it when I updated to the latest MPLab and I kept getting a
message that PWRT conflicts with config bits for BOD.
This happened whenever I tried to write to a 16F876 so I deduced that BOD
was brown out detect and I was able to write once I turned off BOD,
otherwise I tried flashing the chip with a program that had a PWRT mention
in the config line I think, and BOD was allowed to stay on.

So what does all that mean?

PWRT =  the Power-up Timer , which provides a
fixed delay of 72 ms (nominal) on power-up only. This
design keeps the device in reset while the power supply
stabilizes.

from the datasheet :)

Thanks.

I figured it would be somewhere in there...but I've seen those 200 pages so
much and not found what I need, that I thought it would be a relatively easy
question for someone to answer without getting annoyed over "RTFM" stuff!  I
thank you for that as well.
I'm just trying to learn the pic from all over the place instead of going
systematically as I should...since time is very short.  Instead of reading
the data sheet and learning what all the acronyms mean, for now I'm trying
to get my specific application running and as I go along I learn what the
instruction set commands do that are used in my glued together experiments.
Today it's time to take a channel of A/D and get it displayed on 7 segments
from 0 to 255.  Last night all I got was a steady "0" readout....at least I
got the ports working!
