What does this trigger do?


I would like to ask for help determining what the following trigger does.  I inherited an instance and trying to break down some of the code.  I just can't figure this one out (probably because I don't know Apex).  There is a description half way through the code, but I'm wondering if that description includes the entire code.

Can you help me out with a brief explanation?

public without sharing class LeadTriggerHandler {
    public void onAfterUpdate(Lead[] newleads){
        //update MQL records

    public void onBeforeInsert(Lead[] newleads){

            if(l.LeadSource == 'Inbound Sales'){
                l.Status = 'Marketing Qualified Lead';
    public void onAfterInsert(Lead[] newleads){
      List<MQL_Record__c> mqlRecordsToInsert = new List<MQL_Record__c>();

       for(Lead l :newleads){
            if(l.LeadSource == 'Inbound Sales'){

This is a class containing methods called by a trigger. You should be able to find the trigger(s) at Setup | Build |Customize | Leads | Triggers.

Basically, the mothod name tells you when it is called.  They could be used in one single trigger or different triggers on Lead object.

onAfterUpdate -- called by After Update trigger on Lead object
onAfterInsert - called by After Insert trigger  on Lead object
onBeforeInsert - called by Before Insert trigger  on Lead object

updateContactRType -- I don't see it is being called. It is private method and won't be able to called out side of this class.

Other methods from half way down have clear descriptions.
