I think, at the beginning you only have to know kdefrontend/MainWin.cpp and 
kdefrontend/LabPlot2.rc in order to extend the main menu and to provide a new 
entry for starting the new tool. As I already said in my previous email, this 
digitizer tool is more or less self-consistent and independent piece of code 
and you can develop it in the beginning without the deeper understanding of 
labplot's code basis. Just create a new widget/dialog with the possibility to 
load an image or pdf/ps/eps-file, to define the coordinate system on top of 
the loaded image and to collect the pairs of x- and y-coordinates by clicking 
the points. If this is done, consider extending this widget with additional 
functionality that would make this tool more user-friendly (like zooming in 
into a small area under the mouse cursor etc.). When this is done, you can 
start to learn the interface of the labplots's Spreadsheet and Column in order 
to transfer the collected data.

I'll try to write some documentation on the code in the next weeks.
