15.4 Killing Buffers
After using Emacs for a while, you may accumulate a large number of
buffers and may want to eliminate the ones you no longer need. There
are several commands for doing this.
Kill a buffer, specified by name (`kill-buffer').
Offer to kill each buffer, one by one.
`C-x k' (`kill-buffer') kills one buffer, whose name you specify in
the minibuffer. If you type just <RET> in the minibuffer, the default,
killing the current buffer, is used. If the current buffer is killed,
the buffer that has been selected recently but does not appear in any
window now is selected. If the buffer being killed contains unsaved
changes, you are asked to confirm with `yes' before the buffer is
The command `M-x kill-some-buffers' asks about each buffer, one by
one. An answer of `y' means to kill the buffer. Killing the current
buffer or a buffer containing unsaved changes selects a new buffer or
asks for confirmation just like `kill-buffer'.
