'Hi-voltage from a chip'

I learned that a 16C84 internally generates its own voltage for
programming the EEPROM. I now wonder if it is possible (and cheap) to
build a programmer for the parallel port, which generates its own
programming voltage (12-14V). If a single chip could eliminate the need
for an external power supply, it would lead to a much handier programming

Any comments?

The Charles Manning PIC16c84 programmer uses a 555 as a voltage multiplier to
generate enough voltage, from the 5 volt supply, to get 13.6 vdc for the
programming voltage.  This unit is available in the US from Marlin Jones in
Florida for $39.95 USD.
