2.4.1 The File Menu
-------------------

The File menu bar item contains the items New Frame, Open File..., Save
Buffer, Save Buffer As..., Revert Buffer, Print Buffer, Delete Frame,
Kill Buffer and Exit Emacs on the pull-down menu.  If you select a menu
item, Emacs executes the equivalent command.

Open File, New Frame...
     Prompts you for a filename and loads that file into a new buffer
     in a new Emacs frame, that is, a new X window running under the
     same Emacs process.  You can remove the frame using the Delete
     Frame menu item.  When you remove the last frame, you exit Emacs
     and are prompted for confirmation.

Open File...
     Prompts you for a filename and loads that file into a new buffer.
     Open File... is equivalent to the Emacs command `find-file' (`C-x
     C-f').

Insert File...
     Prompts you for a filename and inserts the contents of that file
     into the current buffer.  The file associated with the current
     buffer is not changed by this command.  This is equivalent to the
     Emacs command `insert-file' (`C-x i').

Save Buffer
     Writes and saves the current Emacs buffer as the latest version of
     the current visited file.  Save Buffer is equivalent to the Emacs
     command `save-buffer' (`C-x C-s').

Save Buffer As...
     Writes and saves the current Emacs buffer to the filename you
     specify.  Save Buffer As... is equivalent to the Emacs command
     `write-file' (`C-x C-w').

Revert Buffer
     Restores the last saved version of the file to the current buffer.
     When you edit a buffer containing a text file, you must save the
     buffer before your changes become effective.  Use Revert Buffer if
     you do not want to keep the changes you have made in the buffer.
     Revert Buffer is equivalent to the Emacs command `revert-file'
     (`M-x revert-buffer').

Kill Buffer
     Kills the current buffer, prompting you first if there are unsaved
     changes.  This is roughly equivalent to the Emacs command
     `kill-buffer' (`C-x k'), except that `kill-buffer' prompts for the
     name of a buffer to kill.

Print Buffer
     Prints a hardcopy of the current buffer.  Equivalent to the Emacs
     command `print-buffer' (`M-x print-buffer').

New Frame
     Creates a new Emacs frame displaying the `*scratch*' buffer.  This
     is like the Open File, New Frame... menu item, except that it does
     not prompt for or load a file.

Delete Frame
     Allows you to close all but one of the frames created by New Frame.
     If you created several Emacs frames belonging to the same Emacs
     process, you can close all but one of them.  When you attempt to
     close the last frame, Emacs informs you that you are attempting to
     delete the last frame.  You have to choose Exit Emacs for that.

Split Frame
     Divides the current window on the current frame into two
     equal-sized windows, both displaying the same buffer.  Equivalent
     to the Emacs command `split-window-vertically' (`C-x 2').

Un-split (Keep This)
     If the frame is divided into multiple windows, this removes all
     windows other than the selected one.  Equivalent to the Emacs
     command `delete-other-windows' (`C-x 1').

Un-split (Keep Others)
     If the frame is divided into multiple windows, this removes the
     selected window from the frame, giving the space back to one of the
     other windows.  Equivalent to the Emacs command `delete-window'
     (`C-x 0').

Exit Emacs
     Shuts down (kills) the Emacs process.  Equivalent to the Emacs
     command `save-buffers-kill-emacs' (`C-x C-c').  Before killing the
     Emacs process, the system asks which unsaved buffers to save by
     going through the list of all buffers in that Emacs process.
