Open original thread
I'm currently assigned to a project at the University,
where we are teamed up with students from other fields of study.
I have a hard time explaining how code is stored in a microprocessor.

They asked me a question, which I do not know how to answer:

"If a program has been stored in the microprocessor, is it then possible for other firms to take that microprocessor and read the program code in order to make a copy of it?"

Thanks you in advance

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
Let's work to help developers, not make them feel stupid.
