Hi Emanoil,
I think it is difficult to find documentation at that level. The closest thing I can think of, is the Tqt and TDE
library API documentation. This goes info a fair bit of details but some parts are missing or quite generic.
Rather than that, it is a matter of navigating the code and try to understand which part is responsible for the
functionality you are looking for. This can be quite intimidating at the beginning (especially something like Konqueror)
but bit by bit your understanding will grow and so will your skills. I don't think there is any other way to dig into
such detail of the code, or if there is I am not aware of.
