Trying to debug generator code: Editor::inst ... ->process($_POST)

I am trying to understand (and debug) the code that is produced by the Editor generator. I created a simple test case for a table called "project". The editor instance sets the ajax property of the editor to /php/table.product.php:

$(document).ready(function() {
    var editor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( {
        ajax: 'php/table.project.php',
        table: '#project', ...

I am trying to understand how the code in table.product.php works.

// Build our Editor instance and process the data coming from _POST
Editor::inst( $db, 'project', 'projectId' )
        Field::inst( 'projectid' ),
        Field::inst( 'name' ),
        Field::inst( 'status' )
    ->process( $_POST )

Specifically, where will I find the code for the process function? I cannot find any mention of it from searching on the datatables site. Is there any documentation for it anywhere? I'm having trouble getting it to work in my case and I want to understand it.

    The process() method is in the PHP libraries for Editor. You can see the code for it here.

    What is the problem you are running into? Perhaps I can help point you in the right direction.
