The British Standards Institution have a suite of tests that they sell as
a Modula 2 validation suite. Of course since the standard has yet to be
finialised this suite has no official standing. BSI Tel +44 908 220908,
ask for Software Quality Assurance.

I believe that Hayes originally had a lot to do with the production of the
tests. Also Atlanta Tech are involved.
