Microchip 'by convention' places eeprom data defined in an application at a
certain address in the same .hex file as the program code (0x2100?). All
programmers I know will write such data to the eeprom in the PIC. When there
is no code in the .hex file they would just write the data (but maybe erase
the code first to be sure to start with a blank chip). NB the i2c eeprom in
a 12ce518/9 can not be written this way.
