It can be seen that almost all OpenCV functions receive InputArray type. What is it, and how can I understand the actual input types of parameters?

This is the proxy class for passing read-only input arrays into OpenCV functions.

Inside a function you should use _InputArray::getMat() method to construct a matrix header for the array (without copying data). _InputArray::kind() can be used to distinguish Mat from vector<> etc., but normally it is not needed.
