this might be obvious but since I’m not a real programmer I couldn’t find a satisfying answer on my own.
How are the github repos cardano ledger specs and cardano node connected? Does the node use code from the specs or is the sole purpose of the specs to verify the papers?
Take wallet.hs for example
Is this code referenced in the node’s code? From my understanding the node kind of is the cardano protocol so it somehow needs to incorporate the functions from those files or are they implemented in a different way?
Could you for example point me to the point in the node’s code where the reward function is implemented?
Again, this question might not make much sense for a developer, but I hope you get what I’m asking.
