    It works by changing the input threshold as a function of the output voltage.

    are you familiar with the term "rectification"?

    just like in a power supply using a transformer. the secondary output is in the form of a sinewave. you pass it thru a diode and the output becomes a squarewave. on how a diode rectifies it, you just have study the various function of a diode.:)
