There are, in general, many buffers in an Emacs session. At any time, one of them is designated as the "current buffer". This is the buffer in which most editing takes place, because most of the primitives for examining or changing text in a buffer operate implicitly on the current buffer. Normally the buffer that is displayed on the screen in the selected window is the current buffer, but this is not always so: a program can temporarily designate any buffer as current in order to operate on its contents, without changing what is displayed on the screen.

(Info-goto-node "(elisp)Current Buffer").

val get : unit -> Ecaml_value__.Value0.t

val variable_is_defined : Symbol.t -> bool

val replace_string : ?start:Position.t -> ?end_:Position.t -> from:string -> to_:string -> unit -> unit

replace_string ~from ~to_ replaces all occurrences of from with to_. It is like (describe-function 'replace-string), but doesn't actually call that, because its documentation says:

      This function is for interactive use only;
      in Lisp code use `search-forward' and `replace-match' instead.
