Update a buffer programmatically

Good morning

I'm trying to patch up a tiny part of an IDE inside xemacs (on

What I want is to display a read-only buffer called, say "results",
and have emacs update it automatically every time a file called
"~/build_log" is modified (by the compiler). The data in buffer
"results" will be gathered by a lengthy grep operation over 300 or so
files (this will take about 1 minute).

I'm not sure if I want "results" to be a file or a temp buffer. (I
might want it to be a file so that it can be accessed from outside

So, what do I do it?
