Any interested persons,

To answer my own question, at least in the case of RPGIV, I now know through 
trial and error that the program specified in a scope message is called when 
the procedure or sub-procedure ends.  Even when *PGM is specified.  NOT when 
the program ends, as stated in the manual.  So *PGM and *CSE are equivalent 
with the transfer control exception.  Whoever wrote that part of the manual 
gets a star.  I guess I will send in the comment card.

I would have really liked the scope program to be called when the program entry 
point procedure ends.  Not when a procedure ends.  Fortunately I have a work 
around, it is not what I wanted at all, but it sure beats the CEE register exit

One more thought,

What about using a scope message?   Even though a control boundary is not 
viable, the program level would probably be OK.  If I send a scope message from 
a sub-procedure bound into a service program when is the scope program called?  
The manual is very vague.  It simply says the program is called when your call 
stack entry, program, or job ends.  It then goes on to talk about the only 
difference between call stack entry and program is when a transfer control 
occurs.  This is further confused when later it says "when the caller's program 
ends", implying they are different.   If anyone has any experience in this area 
I would appreciate a summary.
