This function returns a list of all the live frames, i.e., those that
have not been deleted. It is analogous to
buffers, and includes frames on all terminals. The list that you get
is newly created, so modifying the list doesn’t have any effect on the
internals of Emacs.
This function returns a list of just the currently visible frames. See Visibility of Frames. Frames on text terminals always count as visible, even though only the selected one is actually displayed.
This function returns a list of Emacs’ frames, in Z (stacking) order
(see Raising, Lowering and Restacking Frames). The optional argument display
specifies which display to poll. display should be either a frame
or a display name (a string). If omitted or
nil, that stands for
the selected frame’s display. It returns
nil if display
contains no Emacs frame.
Frames are listed from topmost (first) to bottommost (last). As a
special case, if display is non-
nil and specifies a live
frame, it returns the child frames of that frame in Z (stacking) order.
This function is not meaningful on text terminals.
This function lets you cycle conveniently through all the frames on a
specific terminal from an arbitrary starting point. It returns the
frame following frame, in the list of all live frames, on
frame’s terminal. The argument frame must specify a live
frame and defaults to the selected frame. It never returns a frame
no-other-frame parameter (see Frame Interaction Parameters) is non-
The second argument, minibuf, says which frames to consider when deciding what the next frame should be:
Consider all frames except minibuffer-only frames.
Consider only visible frames.
Consider only visible or iconified frames.
Consider only the frames using that particular window as their minibuffer window.
Consider all frames.

previous-window, in Cyclic Ordering of Windows.
