Isn't 'C-x k' (kill-buffer) basically a file closing command? It doesn't
require confirmation for files that are already saved, and the file that
the buffer was visiting is then removed from the buffer list. Or am I
misunderstanding what you mean by 'close file'.

Also, I can't find kill-file on my emacs (GNU Emacs, did you
mean kill-buffer to begin with?
