What is the differences between Uart and RS 232 (For programming PIC microcontroler ). i know that RS-232 is a type of UART but i don't know when programming PIC there is anything different.

RS232 is a completely different thing to a UART. They are often seen together, but often apart.

One is an electrical interface specification, the other is a hardware device.

Some PIC controllers have UARTs, but as far as I know, there is no PIC in the world that has an RS232 interface.

Why not do a bit of research for yourself and google each term to find out what they are?
