If you are in Emacs, type

M-x lisp-interaction-mode

and hit RETURN.

(Here M-x is either ESC key and then "x" key or the "Alt" key and the "x" key together.)

That turns your buffer into a LISP buffer (which *scratch* normally is if you haven't deleted it). Now you type a LISP expression.

(defun f (x) (car x))

go with the cursor at the end of the line and hit Ctrl-j. That will evaluate that line.

Sorry, that is all I know, but perhaps it helps.
