C-h a eval RET

[Of these, the functions I find more useful are:]

(snip)
eval-buffer                   M-x eval-buffer RET
  Command: Execute the current buffer as Lisp code.
(snip)
eval-last-sexp                C-x C-e
  Command: Evaluate sexp before point; print value in minibuffer.
(snip)
eval-region                   M-x eval-region RET
  Command: Execute the region as Lisp code.
(snip)
