Emacs has a very handy help function called apropos.  If you type C-h
(Control h) and then 'a', you'll get an apropos prompt.  If you type
"kill buffer" here, you'll see a bunch of emacs commands involving
killing buffers.  Most notably, you'll want to look at kill-buffer and
kill-some-buffers.  For future reference, there is a family of apropos
functions that can be quite helpful--- C-h a 'apropos' to see them.
