Thanks Daniel,

I downloaded Doxygen and found it helps to index and quick-draw the source
code files.
Yes, I agree to install the latest version, 4.4.2(?), and planning to.
As a matter of fact, do you know if the 4.4 version runs stably on Solaris

There is no formal description of the source files available anywhere.
However you could use a tool such as Doxygen (
to generate some documentation based on the source files. That could
give you at least an idea of what's in each file.

BTW, MapServer 4.0.1 is quite old, you should work with the current
release. i18n support has been added to MapServer 4.4, so I would
recommend that you use that version instead, and you would not need to
do any work to produce maps with Japanese fonts, assuming that's what
you were planning to do. Look for the ENCODING keyword in the mapfile
