"<=" in R or S

Many of you have probably seen the discussion in the R-help list
with the subject:
   [R] Unreadable code: was the underscore ("_") in variables

I thought I should be able to bind an unused key combination to
a function to insert "<-", and then I could gloat about another
advantage of running R from ess.  I put the following in .emacs:

  (defun R-equals () (insert "<-"))
  (global-set-key [?\C-=] 'R-equals)

But all I get from C-= is "Wrong type argument, commandp, R-equals"
in the Minibuffer.  Being lisp literate enough only to get into
trouble, I'm stumped at this point.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
   Thanks, Pierre
