Module 6: Procedure Division
- STOP RUN is the last executable statement of the main program and it transfers control back to OS
- STOP RUN should be coded only in main (calling) program. However, when coded in sub-program (called program), the control will directly be returned to OS instead of returning to main program. This may cause remaining statement of main program to be skipped.
- STOP RUN closes all the opened files of program.
