"Alist of frame parameters for creating the initial X window frame.
You can set this in your `.emacs' file; for example,
(setq initial-frame-alist '((top . 1) (left . 1) (width . 80) (height . 55)))
If the value calls for a frame without a minibuffer, and you do not create a
minibuffer frame on your own, one is created according to
Parameters specified here supersede the values given in `default-frame-alist'.

You can specify geometry-related options for just the initial frame
by setting this variable in your `.emacs' file; however, they won't
take affect until Emacs reads `.emacs', which happens after first creating
the frame. If you want the frame to have the proper geometry as soon
as it appears, you need to use this three-step process:
* Specify X resources to give the geometry you want.
* Set `default-frame-alist' to override these options so that they
don't affect subsequent frames.
* Set `initial-frame-alist' in a way that matches the X resources,
to override what you put in `default-frame-alist'.")
