Need crash course in Dropbox library

Unfortunately, looking at the other library isn't making things clearer...

Let me get more specific, here are the main commands I'm trying to learn:

dropboxUploadSessionStart pAccessToken, pData
dropboxUploadSessionAppend pAccessToken, pSession, pOffset, pData
dropboxUploadSessionFinish pAccessToken, pSession, pOffset, pPath, pMode,
pAutorename, pMute, pData

I understand how to get the access token, and how to get the sessionID
but...

1. what do I put into pData? I assume pData is the file I am supposed to be
uploading, but how do I put it in there? do I just open file, then read from
file and then put it into pData?
2. do i just use the same value for pData in all commands?
3. Where do I get the pOffset value?
4. Do I control how much data is sent with each request? If so, how? If not,
how do I know how many append sessions to use before I send the finish?
