I recently found out that you can move the cursor the beginning of a line quickly by line number like this:

:11

Regardless of your cursor position, this will move the cursor the beginning of line 11.

But what is the fastest way to move to the end of line 11?

    fastest in User time or CPU (if you have a script that do thousands movements to end of lines) time?

    You should probably clarify your usecase: 11G$

    An even faster way to move to the start of the 11th line would be to use 11G in normal mode. Not sure how to move to the end of line without scripting though...
