If you get to work in Unix, I found you can customize keys more.
I was able to supplement the SAS action with Ctrl+home to go to the
beginning of the line even when the Command line is present.
It could have been any combination.
Although the keys window allows HOME to be re-defined, there is an area
referred to as X-resources which allow all sorts of key definitions.
With this I was able to define keys, which coming from Windows, I missed
goto end of line
goto beginning of line
erase to end of line
erase to beginning of line
A parallel on mainframe SAS on a terminal emulator is keyboard remapper.
On windows we don't seem to have an equivalent layer of control
