Recall a comand in history in ESS-5.1.11 and NTEmacs 20.4.

I wonder how I can find the last command in history that began with
a particular sequence of characters in an S-PLUS session (invoked
by M-x Sqpe+4) in NTEmacs 20.4 on a Win98 PC. From ESS - Emacs Speaks
Statistics, A-M-r should do this job. But I don't know how to type
A-M-r on my PC because Alt is used for M on my PC. Currently I have
to use M-r and regular expression to do this job, which is not handy.

Another off-topic question: in NTEmacs, how can I highlight (select)
using keyboard rather than mouse? I prefer something similar to
the way in native MS-Windows applications, which allows me to start
highlight anywhere by pressing shift (+ Ctrl) + arrow keys and to
stop anywhere. Sorry if this is a stupid question. I use Emacs only
for S-PLUS and don't know very much about it.

Thanks for any help.
