AZERTY-friendly Emacs bindings ?

Are there AZERTY-friendly bindings available for Emacs or can you somehow change the default bindings ?

I ask this because of certain commands that require numbers and on a AZERTY keyboard you have to press shift to access numbers.

e.g. when I need to split windows vertically I have to press CTRL+x followed by SHIFT+&, which is kind of a hassle

put these in your .emacs file in your home directory, use whatever function keys you want instead of f5 & f6

(global-set-key [f5] 'split-window-vertically)
(global-set-key [f6] 'split-window-horizontally)
