quick-exit - Exit the editor writing changes
save-buffers-exit-emacs - Exit the editor prompt user to write changes
n quick-exit (esc z) [exitCode]
save-buffers-exit-emacs (C-x C-c) [exitCode]
quick-exit writes out all changed buffers to the files they were read from, saves all changed dictionaries, killing any running commands and exits the editor.
The numeric argument is defined as follows:
save-buffers-exit-emacs prompts the user before saving any files, writes out all changed buffers to the files they were read from. Saves all changed dictionaries, killing any running commands and exits the editor.
If the macro shut-down(3) is defined then it is invoked by the editor when it is closed. A user defined shutdown action may be associated with the close operation. It is the callers responsibility that the macro terminates correctly otherwise the editor will hang.
For macros development then the exit-emacs(2) command provides better control of the exit process than quick-exit and save-buffers-exit-emacs and should be used instead. save-buffers-exit-emacs is actually implemented as 3 exit-emacs.
All buffers with a name starting with a '*' are assumed to be system buffer (i.e. *scratch*) and are not saved.
