'[PIC]: Chip test program??'

Is there any program written to exercise a PIC to see if it is working
properly? I know it couldnt be perfect, but I searched the net
looking for code that might have been used to verify probably good
operation of a pic. I'm interested in overclocking, and I'm sure
others are too, so I figured someone might have written a routine
that pretty well wrings out a pic to verify correct operation. I tested
some 4 mhz chips with a little sequential led flashing program, and
these chips "seemed" to work at 20 Mhz, but still, I feel uneasy
about overclocking anything unless I have a pretty good feel for it.

In the uChip Advanced seminars (IIRC) they discuss this;  Anyone know if
that concept's on the uChip web site?

Don't want to do this on an OTP part unless you make it part of your
power-up code, of course.
