i want to understand the source code thoroughly, but i am not very good at reading other people's code. I have no idea where to start.
The reason i'm interesed in winSCP is twofold:
1) i want to brush up on my C++, understand cryptography in more detail and lean how to build an application from scratch
2) i want to be able to contribute to the open source community.

Do you know which part of the code i could start from? Is there a document describing what each file does, wat each Class is for, and how they interact? Your help would be appreciated.

There's no such documentation Sad In readme file in source code package you can find very brief description of the folders.
