You can also force Emacs to display a file or directory at startup
by setting the variable @code{initial-buffer-choice} to a string
naming that file or directory. The value of
@code{initial-buffer-choice} may also be a function which should
return a buffer which is then displayed. @code{initial-buffer-choice}
may also be @code{t} in which case the @file{*scratch*} buffer will be
shown. In any case, even if you specify one or more files on the
command line, Emacs opens but does not display them if
@code{initial-buffer-choice} is non-nil.
@code{initial-buffer-choice} may also be a function (of no arguments)

If @code{initial-buffer-choice} is non-@code{nil}, then if you specify
any files on the command line, Emacs still visits them, but does not
display them initially.
