Is there some sort of memtest86 for eeproms?

I got an W29C020C-90B and an W29C020-12 for about total $10.

If I'm reading datascheets correctly the first one has about 1k cycles and
second one has about 10k cycles.

They have one week warrany on them so I would like to test them if they are
free of errors even if the 440bx is not ready for prime time. Is there some
easy way to do this?
