Here's some code that will put a specified character position at
the top of the display. It won't stay there for long unless the
insertion point is visible (e.g. you will probably want to move the
insertion point as well).

; Make the first displayed character be at position POS in the buffer.
; Redisplay right away if UPDATE? is true.
(defobfun (set-display-mark *fred-window*) (pos &optional update?)
  (prog1 (set-mark (ccl::wpos-mark (objvar ccl::edwin)) pos)
   (when update? (ccl::edwin-update (objvar ccl::edwin)))))
