Are there sizeable examples of code that builds and runs when compiled in betterC mode?

I am looking for examples that are betterC only.

Thanks and Regards

I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for, but here are some things that might interest you:

BindBC-bindings are pretty sizeable:
https://github.com/BindBC

However, they're simply interfaces for C libraries so they're not really complex or interesting as a code example.

I recently translated most of glfw and libsoundio, two C libraries, resulting in ~50 000 lines of D code:
https://github.com/dkorpel/glfw-d
https://github.com/dkorpel/libsoundio-d
They have `buildOptions "betterC"` in the dub.sdl.

If you're looking for betterC libraries with brand new code, check out:
https://github.com/libmir

If you're looking for an application instead of library specifically, I don't have a good example currently.

Okay thank you. I am just trying to see what language features are used as a way of figuring out what works in betterC

It's useless, and I'm sure there are things that could be better done today, but it's a complete, non-trivial program using betterC techniques:
https://gitlab.com/sarneaud/xanthe

(NB: it's more low-level than most betterC code because it doesn't even use libc.  E.g., all memory allocation is static or using freelists, but you can use malloc() in normal betterC code https://dlang.org/phobos/core_stdc_stdlib.html#.malloc)
