If I want a certain row to be the first that is shown, I press C-l C-l. Now I'm looking for the same thing with columns. I imagine it like this:
I move the cursor to the desired column, do "blank", and said column becomes the first column visible. Changing rows does not change that first column.


Keeping in mind that column numbers are zero-based, and assuming that column zero is currently visible, then you can use scroll-left with the desired column as a prefix argument. e.g.:

C-u 16 C-x<
