Is there a standard function to create an Emacs buffer in which we cannot type anything in (i.e. cannot be edited) but any running Elisp code can make changes to the buffer
The following code does not work.
(get-buffer-create "foo") (set-buffer "foo") (read-only-mode) (insert "Hello world")
Here, not only does the foo buffer becomes unwritable by me (by typing), even the
insert function cannot write anything to it.
This can be useful for printing text to a buffer while some Elisp code is running, but cannot be accidentally edited if I have the buffer currently active.
