[Taler] (docs) Amount vs ParsedAmount

I see that there are two types, ‘Amount’ and ‘ParsedAmount’,
defined in api-common.rst.  There is also the blurb:

 // For example, a fraction
 // of 50,000,000 would correspond to 50 cents.

(in the ‘ParsedAmount’ explanation for field ‘fraction’).

My understanding is that when i write ‘Amount’ "EUR:1.50", that
corresponds to (becomes, after parsing) the ‘ParsedAmount’

   "currency": "EUR",
   "value": 1,
   "fraction": 50000000

That is, the ".50" portion of ‘Amount’ is textually "zero-
extended" to eight digits before applying some kind of ‘atol’

My questions are:

(a) Is that correct?
(b) For future reference, where can i find this in the source?
    (Which repo?)
