              	Can you please let me know how does it talk with raw packets. Is it using existing TCP stack or is it directly communication with lower level drivers like phy/Mac layer. & Where do I find that code section where we accessing raw buffers.

There are READMEs in the doc subdirectory.

README.developer is a good starting point.

Otherwise, most of the code is pretty straightforward so it shouldnt be too hard to just read it.
