FW: Unable to work with function keys in SAS

Pls help with F3.

Setting to global-unix maps correctly now, but F3 just gives me a shell
and does not really submit to sas.
This is strange since M-x SAS is able to start SAS.

Thank you
stephen

You probably are set for ESS SAS unix keys instead of dos keys (or the
other way around).  Try one of the following

M-x ess-sas-local-unix-keys
M-x ess-sas-local-pc-keys
M-x ess-sas-global-unix-keys
M-x ess-sas-global-pc-keys

Please send future queries on ESS, and any followup to this one, to the
ess-help list, not to me or any individuals.  You will get a much faster
response.

Rich

The first time that you press F3 it will take you to a shell buffer
and submit the job.  Are you saying that it takes you to a shell
buffer, but no job is submitted?  That's weird.  Try sending a
complete bug report with M-x ess-submit-bug-report

ess and long R jobs

Hi,

I do not know if it was discussed on the list, so I apologize if I'm
raising an old topic. 

When I run CPU consuming jobs from ESS with R, I cannot do anything else
within emacs. Now I am working with MCMC, and each run takes about 5
minutes, so since my code is still in initial phase, I would like to
work on it, while current R task is running in a background. Is it at
all possible? I could easily solve this problem by running few separate
emacs windows, but it would be nice to have possibility to run few R
sessions from ESS, one with intensive computations, and another to work
on, while waiting for results.

I am using R 2.2.1 with ESS 5.3.1, Emacs 21.4.1 on Ubuntu Dapper Drake.

Re: ess and long R jobs

C-g
tells emacs to stop waiting for the completion of the R interaction.
After C-g, you can do other emacs work at the same time as the R
task completes.

I believe it has been discussed more recently, but here is some 
excellent advice from Martin last year:

NEWBIE: Unable to print graphs

I've just started to use ESS for R, and am new to emacs as well, so this
may be the root cause of my problems. I've installed XEmacs and R under
Windows according to John Fox' directions. XEmacs and R seem to be
working; I can send R commands from the upper to the lower window and
have them executed. Generation of graphs also seems to work correctly,
with the graph appearing in a separate window. However, if I try to
print the graph by using the File->Print... command, the menu hangs open
and the window appears to hang -- if it is covered by another window,
when revealed it doesn't refresh, the covered portions remain blank.

I also thought that somehow, I saw a message in the R window similar to
"Printer cannot be found." However, I'm unable to reproduce that now.

Printing works normally from both the upper and lower buffer windows in
XEmacs.

Thanks for any suggestions to correct this problem. Googling didn't
point me to any obvious things to fix.

R Problem: install.packages() in NTEmacs 21.3 with ESS 2.3.5.

Hi All,

I got a R problem when issuing the command 'install.packages()' within NT Emacs 21.3 + ESS 2.3.5. The Emacs
freezes after this command.

I've already searched this mailing list for a solution. I found the same problem was reported in 2005
archives. The problem could be solved by issuing 'library(tcltk)' or 'windows()' first. But I don't
think this is a nice solution. I found another trick, which is to cancel the install.packages() at the
first time by "C-c C-c" and re-enter this command again, then the CRAN mirror site selection windows will
be pop-up. However, this solution is also not satisfiable.

I think this is a bug from ESS instead of R since there is no such problem when I use Rgui or Rterm alone. It is a
big surprise to me that the latest ESS still contains such a problem.  I wonder if there is anyone who has
already solved this problem. Thanks.

Regards,
Will

You haven't said how your calling install.packages(), but by the
sounds of it your not specifying the mirror to use (mention of
library(tcltk) and the pop-up window appearing).

One option would be to load either of the recommended libraries in
your .Rprofile (or windows equivalent, sorry not familiar with
windows).  Alternatively...

Its not a bug in ESS at all.

The simple solution would be to specify the mirror that you want to use.

First select a mirror that is geographically close to you from
http://cran.r-project.org/mirrors.html

How to install ssh.el?

Hi

I know that this is not a pure ESS question - but ssh.el is mentioned in 
the ESS manual and I would like to use it to connect to a remote R 
session, I am asking here:

How can I install ssh.el? I downloaded it and I guess I have to save it 
in one of the Emacs directories - but which one? And do I have to change 
some ini files?

Thanks for your help,

Rainer

Re: R Problem: install.packages() in NTEmacs 21.3 with ESS 2.3.5.

Dear Neil,

Thanks for you quick reply.

Sorry I didn't explain clearly about my problem. But could you please look at the past post at
https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/ess-help/2005-December/003075.html and its following threads.
They will explain everything better than I did.

I didn't find any solution yet. That's why I think this is a bug.

Thanks
Will
