control characters are displayed.
@deffn Command goto-line line &optional buffer
This function moves point to the front of the @var{line}th line,
counting from line 1 at beginning of the buffer, and leaves mark at the
previous position. 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 buffer.
If narrowing is in effect, then @var{line} still counts from the
beginning of the buffer, but point cannot go outside the accessible
portion. So @code{goto-line} moves point to the beginning or end of the
accessible portion, if the line number specifies an inaccessible
position.
The return value of @code{goto-line} is the difference between
@var{line} and the line number of the line to which point actually was
able to move (in the full buffer, before taking account of narrowing).
Thus, the value is positive if the scan encounters the real end of the
buffer before finding the specified line. The value is zero if scan
encounters the end of the accessible portion, but not the real end of
the buffer.
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.
