Emacs – Shortcut – Jump to line no

There are two shortcuts:

Either: Alt-GG (M-g-g)

Or

M-x and type “goto-line”

Stylesen has ingeniously provided a way to use an Alternate key for this. He has chosen Ctrl-l for the Jump to line No Shortcut, which requires the following in the file ~/.emacs:

;; Goto-line short-cut key                                                                                                   
(global-set-key "\C-l" 'goto-line)
