Which part are you interested in ?

It is a far more easy to understand with the 3.1g source (far more C
oriented, despite being already very object oriented, without
multi-threading and message passing, but also with all sources flat IIRC)

common sources are in source/, but gluing code is in vfe/ and unix/ (for
the unix port)

p.s.: check the licenses.
p.s.2: current code is 3.7RC7, not beta anymore.
