it kills the Emacs.)
C-z is the command to exit Emacs *temporarily*--so that you can go
back to the same Emacs session afterward.
On systems which allow it, C-z "suspends" Emacs; that is, it returns
to the shell but does not destroy the Emacs. In the most common
shells, you can resume Emacs with the `fg' command or with `%emacs'.
If you are using a graphical display that supports multiple
applications in parallel, you don't need any special command to move
from Emacs to another application. You can do this with the mouse or
with window manager commands. However, if you're using a text
terminal which can only show one application at a time, you need to
"suspend" Emacs to move to any other program.
On systems which do not implement suspending, C-z creates a subshell
running under Emacs to give you the chance to run other programs and
return to Emacs afterward; it does not truly "exit" from Emacs. In
this case, the shell command `exit' is the usual way to get back to
Emacs from the subshell.
C-z is the command to exit Emacs *temporarily*--so that you can go

The time to use C-x C-c is when you are about to log out. It's also
the right thing to use to exit an Emacs invoked under mail handling
