bufname: system variable

Default value: "startup"

This variable contains the name of the current buffer. Setting it in an EEL program switches to a different buffer. If the indicated buffer does not exist, nothing happens. Use this method of switching buffers only to temporarily switch to a new buffer; use the to_buffer( ) or to_buffer_num( ) subroutines to change the buffer a window will display.

EEL code must use assignment, not strcpy( ) or similar, to set it: bufname = "name". It's not necessary to preserve the source character array; Epsilon will copy the value.
