Search for places in *.c files where 'readinto' gets registered in a locals_dict , and look for the matching file for the port you are interested in (it's possible not all ports use the exact same implementation so this matters). You'll find matches like

Code: Select all

micropython/ports/esp32/machine_uart.c:
  334:     { MP_ROM_QSTR(MP_QSTR_readinto), MP_ROM_PTR(&mp_stream_readinto_obj) },
Now go to the definition of mp_stream_readinto_obj in micropython/py/stream.c to see what function that is mapped to, it's stream_readinto. Which in turn calls mp_stream_read_exactly, which in trun calls mp_stream_rw and so on, which eventually leads back into machine_uart.c to call the actual harware I/O functionality.
