The ETK toolset ( comprises about 500 programs with
a total of 700,000 lines. These programs are of great complexity and
should be excellent test cases, although some esoteric features of
Cobol (e.g. ALTER) are not used. There are both interactive programs
and batch programs. They will all run under TSO.

To get an idea you can go to and download the sources.
