Hi, Can someone please explain general payment module processing flow?

What gets called in what order and what the various flags mean such as isGateway, canAuthorize etc.

The wiki is only useful up to a point but when you want to actually write the code to fill in the blanks it isn’t clear and the phpdocs are
not very useful. 

I still don’t know what a controller is or how to create success and failure URLs which is used by the hosted payment page to
indicate success or failure.

Weird!  Is there something magic about PHP or the way Magento works?

When I grep the whole magento code tree to try and find out where certain functions are getting called from “e.g. authorize with the 2 parameters $payment, $amount”,
is not found.

very mysterious!
