Creating Frames
===============

   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
     `switch-to-buffer-other-frame'.

`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
     Sending Mail::.

`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-.'.
     Note: Tags.

`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
     Visiting::.
