[GRASS5] libgis raster reading

I need to understand how GRASS reads and writes the raster data from disk. The 
developer Manual doesn't go much into detail and I'm having big problems to 
get lost inside the code... 

Any hint on used algorithms (LZW?) or documentation parts I missed are  


PS: is there some project ongoing that aims to rewrite the raster I/O libs in 
any programming language?
