There are several ways of finding the code. One of them is start from
the UI, and search the English resource string, it will usually give you
a numeric ID that is used in the source code as a defined:

- The text for the function says "Returns the internal rate..." so
  search this string in .src files:
  Full Search: "Returns the internal rate"
  File Path: src

- You get
  The resource ID is ANALYSIS_Xirr. Sometimes the resource ID helps to
  find the related code, or simply use the location of the .src file to
  find it; in this case, grep xirr in main/scaddins/source/analysis/

cd main/scaddins/source/analysis/ && grep --ignore-case xirr *

You'll find

Hope this helps you get started.
