Doxygen is "a documentation generator and static analysis tool for software
The first link you include is the source listing for matroska.h, a header
On the basis of the '0.5' in the URL, I assume that this was the contents
of the file itself at release 0.5. The second link is the 'generated
documentation', which shows things like where something is defined, enum
structures, and where things are referenced. For example, here's one
picked at random:
> #define MATROSKA_ID_CLUSTER 0x1F43B675
>Definition at line 62 of file matroska.h.
>Referenced by ebml_parse_id(), matroska_parse_seekhead_entry(),
matroska_resync(), and mkv_write_packet_internal().
clicking on the links on the page itself will take you to the relevant
parts of the source. This is a similar to features that modern IDEs
provide (jump to definition, see function signature, etc).
Note there's a version of these for 4.1 (for example):
