BTW, while I agree that there's no substitute for good documentation,
when you have the source you can easily solve your doubts about some
implementation details.
With lazarus it's even easier:

1) Project->New project->Application
2) double click on the newly created form
3) in the event that 3) creates type "CheckSynchronize"
4) Put your mouse over "CheckSynchronize", press CTRL and click. This
will lead to the declaration of "CheckSynchronize"
5) From there, press CTRL+SHIFT+DOWN (i.e.arrow down) and you can see
the implementation
6) Rinse and repeat for every call you have some doubts about, to
backtrack you can use CTRL+H
