Shadows and Highlights for Gimp

Can anyone describe what the process was to do shadow and highlight adjustments before they were included in plug-ins and as part of the more expensive software. I've used the shadow & highlight plug-in for Gimp, but in many cases it just wasn't strong enough. I tried out Corel PSP X3; it's adjustment was quite nice, but the program seemed to have a lot of other overhead. I haven't been able to try PS. So, what I wonder is: how can you do the same thing manually, in Gimp for instance, and achieve similar results as some of the bigger programs? Maybe someone can point me to a web site that describes a process for shadow and highlight adjustments.
