visit-file

Read a file into the current buffer.  Ctrl-X Ctrl-V

This command prompts for a file name, then reads that file into the current buffer, and positions point to the beginning. If no file with the given name exists, it creates a blank buffer. In either case, the command discards the old buffer contents.

Before discarding modified buffers, the command asks if you want to save the current buffer contents. With a numeric argument, it asks no questions. This comes in handy for reverting the buffer to the contents of its file.
