I have an assembler background. So they way I approach such a problem
is trying to get a model in my head of how it works UNDER THE HOOD.
Then I don't have to remember a million details. They are all natural
consequences of how that rough model works inside.
One of the first things I do is have a look at source code to try to
get a general picture of how things work. When I do that, all manner
of quirky behaviours cease to seem so quirky, just the side effect of
overly bottom up designing.
So have a look inside src.zip. Most IDEs have tools to let you rapidly
navigate around, or single step programs to watch how it all fits
