frame-list returns a list of all the frames that
have not been deleted. It is analogous to
buffers. The list that you get is newly created, so modifying the list
doesn’t have any effect on the internals of SXEmacs.
This function returns a list of all frames on device. If
nil, the selected device will be used.
This function returns a list of just the currently visible frames. If device is specified only frames on that device will be returned. See Visibility of Frames. (TTY frames always count as “visible”, even though only the selected one is actually displayed.)
next-frame lets you cycle conveniently through all
the frames from an arbitrary starting point. It returns the “next”
frame after frame in the cycle. If frame defaults to the
The second argument, which-frames, says which frames to consider:
Consider only frames that are visible.
Consider only frames that are iconic.
Consider only frames that are invisible (this is different from iconic).
Consider frames that are visible or iconic.
Consider frames that are invisible or iconic.
Consider all frames except minibuffer-only ones.
visible but omits minibuffer-only frames.
iconic but omits minibuffer-only frames.
invisible but omits minibuffer-only frames.
visible-iconic but omits minibuffer-only frames.
invisible-iconic but omits minibuffer-only frames.
Consider only the window window’s frame and any frame now using window as the minibuffer.
Consider all frames.
The optional argument which-devices further clarifies on which devices to search for frames as specified by which-frames.
Consider all devices on the selected console.
Consider only the one device device.
Consider all devices on console.
Consider all devices with device type device-type.
Consider all devices on window system consoles.
Consider all devices without restriction.
