Emacs functions to manipulate multiple frames on multiple displays

;; Convenient functions to manipulate multiple frames on multiple displays

;; e.g. I often run emacs with 4 frames on 4 different VNC sessions

;; and often need to delete all but the current frame.

(progn ; test idiom: defun some stuff, and then test at end of progn. can eval to test interactively
  (defun print-frame-list ()
    (reduce 'concat
(lambda (frame) "print frame"
 (reduce 'concat

"   frame-height X frame-width=" (frame-height frame) "x" (frame-width frame) "\n"
"   frame-pixel-height X frame-pixel-width=" (frame-pixel-height frame) "x" (frame-pixel-width frame) "\n"
"   visibility=" (frame-parameter frame 'visibility) "\n"

useful in cleaning up frames scattered over multiple displays, e.g. multip.le VNC sessions"
