This function moves point to the front of the @var{line}th line,
counting from line 1 at beginning of the buffer. If @var{line} is less
than 1, it moves point to the beginning of the buffer. If @var{line} is
greater than the number of lines in the buffer, it moves point to the
end of the buffer---that is, the @emph{end of the last line} of the

necessarily move to the beginning of a line.

In an interactive call, @var{line} is the numeric prefix argument if
one has been provided. Otherwise @var{line} is read in the minibuffer.
If you provide the optional argument @var{buffer}, @code{goto-line} uses
@var{buffer} instead of the current buffer and displays it in another
window, if it was not already visible.
