[ESS] Custom key bindings for SAS

Hi, thanks for your suggestion. I've already tried the (setq
ess-sas-global-unix-keys t) command though and it does not do exactly what
I want. For example, I want the F3 key to not only submit the SAS program,
but then also to take me automatically to the *shell* buffer. Something
(global-set-key [f3] '(lambda ()
But I only want this to apply when the current buffer is a .sas, .log,
or .lst file or the *shell*.
Also, every time I hit a SAS-related key, I want a message echoed to the
minibuffer area which describes what all the key presses do, .e.g,
(defun my-ess-sas-message ()
(message "F3: submit F4: .sas F5: .log F6: .lst F8:
So this message should be echoed each time I hit F3, F4, F5, F6, or F8. As
(global-set-key [f4] '(lambda ()
Regarding my other question about the annoying dialog, sorry if this is in
fact the wrong forum for that, but I mentioned it here because I've only
seen it appear when using ESS.

I think you should try that command since it does exactly what you
describe that you want. Give it a try and see if you like it. If not,
then let us know. The other question is not ESS related so I deleted it.
