@defun get-buffer-create buffer-or-name
This function returns a buffer named @var{buffer-or-name}. An error is
signaled if @var{buffer-or-name} is neither a string nor a buffer. The
buffer returned does not become the current buffer---this function does
not change which buffer is current.
If @var{buffer-or-name} is a string and a live buffer with that name
exists, it returns that buffer. If no such buffer exists, it creates a
new buffer. If @var{buffer-or-name} is a buffer instead of a string, it
is returned as given, even if it is dead.
