If I get this right, we need to look at least into the following three

* random_file_index.h
* random_file.h

However, the biggest issue I have right now is, that I don't have an
idea what those .map files are good for in the first place. Also I
didn't understand how .map and .map.idx relate to each other and if this
relevant for the compression?

Could you describe in a few words some of the high level concepts behind
those map files and how they fit in the bigger picture (i.e. how they
are used outside of template_db)?
