After opening a file with emacsclient -nw foo.txt I see

When done with a buffer, type C-x #

in the minibuffer.

I however habitually do C-x C-c instead of C-x #

Is there a practical difference between the two?

  • Did you mean C-x C-c? C-x C-x exchanges mark and point. – user12563 Aug 5 '17 at 13:50
  • you're right my typo – american-ninja-warrior Aug 5 '17 at 13:50
  • What did the doc tell you about the difference? – Drew Aug 5 '17 at 14:05
  • I didn't browse the docs, I don't know how to ask the docs this question – american-ninja-warrior Aug 5 '17 at 14:05
  • @joshsverns you can ask what a key does by typing <F1> k and then the keybinding you're interested in. – user12563 Aug 5 '17 at 14:16
