The prefix key `C-x 5' is analogous to `C-x 4', with parallel
subcommands. The difference is that `C-x 5' commands create a new
frame rather than just a new window in the selected frame. (Note: Pop
Up Window.) Different `C-x 5' commands have different ways of
finding the buffer to select.
`C-x 5 b BUFNAME RET'
Select buffer BUFNAME in another window. This runs
`C-x 5 f FILENAME RET'
Visit file FILENAME and select its buffer in another frame. This
runs `find-file-other-frame'. Note: Visiting.
`C-x 5 d DIRECTORY RET'
Select a Dired buffer for directory DIRECTORY in another frame.
This runs `dired-other-frame'. Note: Dired.
`C-x 5 m'
Start composing a mail message in another frame. This runs
`mail-other-frame', and its same-frame version is `C-x m'. *Note
`C-x 5 .'
Find a tag in the current tag table in another frame. This runs
`find-tag-other-frame', the multiple-frame variant of `M-.'.
`C-x 5 r FILENAME RET'
Visit file FILENAME read-only, and select its buffer in another
frame. This runs `find-file-read-only-other-frame'. *Note
