yeah, I don't think its correct to say pass thru. RETURN returns you to
where you started. In a data step that's to the top of the data step. In a
linked procedure, the return takes you back to where you executed the link.
You don't "pass thru" a RETURN. According to the documentation, its "the
last executable" statement in a datastep. It's equivalant to a PL/1 RETURN.
