   can you tell me?

Suppose you want to see the code for function find-file. Then type:

C-h f find-file [ENTER]

A window will appear with the documentation for find-file. The first
line on that window is:

find-file is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `files.el'.

The text `files.el' is an hyperlink. Click on it or move the cursor on
top of it and press [ENTER] and Emacs will show the file where find-file
is implemented. For me it is

Or: M-x find-function RET foobar RET

/usr/local/share/emacs/24.1.50/lisp/files.el.gz

but it varies depending on version, operative system and method of
installation. The file.el.gz is compressed with gzip (to save disk
space, apparently) but Emacs shows it decompressed for you.
