Don't take for granted that as a FreeBSD user you have local access
to over 2GB of C source code history over 10 years or so.

Maybe start with something like /usr/src/usr.bin/yes/yes.c, read the
cvs logs, see *why* things were changed along with what was actually
changed, then once you understand exactly how the program works move
up to something more complicated.  In no time you'll be grokking
/sys/kern and maybe even understand /sys/i386/isa/gpib.c :)
