We're looking for samples of COBOL code, especially large applications
and exhaustive coverage of COBOL features. Has anyone used the NIST
suite ( That web page mentions
about 300 programs, but doesn't give an indication of total size or
completeness. Since it's rather expensive, I'd rather learn a little
about it first.

Our intent is to compile these programs on our P390 mainframe
development system and use them as test cases for our binary
instrumentation tool. So for any applications, we're also looking for
sample input and output. We're willing to pay.
