Hi there guys!, I'm writing another Blockchain parser in C.
Atm I have completely read all blocks (~130mb each one) and the program is outputting information that seems to be ok, however, how could I check out if this information is ACTUALLY ok?; take a look at this output for example:

End of block...


As this being a chain, everything references to the previous thing, so, how could I check that THIS block is ok?, where is the hash of the current block?, I need to mine it?, if I mine it I will not find the same hash that is in the main blockchain; so WTF?, I'm missing something isn'it?

Thanks a lot.

but if you are parsing existing blocks you can skip almost all checks
bitcoin core client did them already
you should only skip non-mainchain blocks from blk***.dat files

Sorry if I didn't express myself properly; what I'm trying to figure out is if the data posted corresponds 100% to a certain block. I thought that it would be as easy as writing the block hash @ blockchain.info:
Prev Block Hash: 000000000000000065709a9a4aaeea6108f0c288af277b0cc1826c7e8ea908cc
https://blockchain.info/block-index/337052/000000000000000065709a9a4aaeea6108f0c288af277b0cc1826c7e8ea908cc

But obviously, this will not give to me the current block information, only the PREVIOUS block information. How can I know the Hash of the block that I'm analyzing?

blockhash is not stored in block
because it can be calculated
SHA256 ( SHA256 ( blockheader ) )
