Where to find info on Android's “service call” shell command?

Using adb shell or a terminal emulator on the device, entering this will clear all notifications (requires su)

service call notification 1

This will send an sms (doesn't require su)

service call isms 5 s16 "PhoneNumber" i32 0 i32 0 s16 "BodyText"

Where can I learn more about service call? I've found this question and appreciate the answer's breakdown as to what everything means. But where can I find info on what method notification 2 might be trying to call?

Running service call was incomplete and printed this usage:

Usage: service [-h|-?]
       service list
       service check SERVICE
       service call SERVICE CODE [i32 INT | s16 STR] ...
   i32: Write the integer INT into the send parcel.
   s16: Write the UTF-16 string STR into the send parcel.

I ran service list and it came back with 78 services for my device including isms and notification and for most services will print what seems to be a namespace ( for isms and for notification). How can I use this information to find out what I can do with each of these services?
