The fast answer: take a look at the lisp code for R, i.e.
(defun R .... )
in the file .../lisp/essd-r.el in the ESS distribution, and copy it to
(defun Duke-S ...)
in the file .../lisp/essd-sp5.el; You want to use the variables in
the Sp5 version, but you want the structure of the R command.
At this point, you can simply do something like:
C-u M-x S+5
and it'll prompt you for arguments.
The long answer -- wait for us to do the above, but it might take a
bit of time (or not, I don't know...).
If you have questions on the "fast way", post and we'll (I'll?) help.
