It currently checks for missing mandatory element, EBML "junk" data (use of 
unknown IDs), bad track or cues (index) entries, and profile violation (like
a v1 file using v2 features).

mkclean depends on libebml2 (BSD) and libmatroska2 (BSD) that themselves
rely on Core-C (BSD) which adds an object API on top of the C language.

** BUILDING **
To build mkclean you have to build coremake first:
17
You can either run ./configure on Linux or
18
- Just compile <root>/corec/tools/coremake/coremake.c with your C compiler.
19 20 21
- run coremake from the root of the source :
  * "coremake.exe vs9_win32" to generate the project files for Visual Studio 2008
  * "coremake gcc_linux" to generate the project files for GNU make building with gcc
22
  * "coremake gcc_linux_x64" for GNU make building with gcc on Linux 64 bits
23 24
  * "coremake xcode_uni" to generate the project files for XCode for a universal OS X binary
  * look in the coremake folder for all the platforms supported

The Makefile/mkclean.sln will end up in the mkclean folder. You just have to
build from there and it will create mkclean(.exe) under <root>/release/

To delete all the project files run "coremake(.exe) clean" from the root of the sources.
