SPDocument * Inkscape::Extension::open ( Extension *  key,
gchar const *  filename 

This is a generic function to use the open function of a module (including Autodetect).

A new document created from the filename passed in
key Identifier of which module to use
filename The file that should be opened
First things first, are we looking at an autodetection? Well if that's the case then the module needs to be found, and that is done with a database lookup through the module DB. The foreach function is called, with the parameter being a gpointer array. It contains both the filename (to find its extension) and where to write the module when it is found.

If there is no autodetection, then the module database is queried with the key given.

If everything is cool at this point, the module is loaded, and there is possibility for preferences. If there is a function, then it is executed to get the dialog to be displayed. After it is finished the function continues.

Lastly, the open function is called in the module itself.
