Since Mathematica has no concept of a proper namespace, there is
actually no difference between "exported" and "non-exported". You can
easily get all the names of the package P by asking for

Names["P`*"]
Names["P`Private`*"]

Then

??P`Private`F

for some function F listed above, will show you the source.

Can you please detail a bit more of what you mean?
