I have VMS version 4.4, running C version 2.2.  When I do an exit(0);,
I get the message that I posted. (The No message for this message
message).  In the 2.2 manual, section 22.1.2, it says that the
value is returned to DCL "and a message is displayed".  I guess that
Version 2.3 fixes this problem.
