The old summary.vdr files were written as




where Title and ShortText were single lines, and Description
could be several lines. Both ShortText and Description were optional.

The new info.vdr format is described in vdr.5 and looks like this:

C S19.2E-1-1079-28007
T nano
S Die Welt von morgen
D U.a. mit folgenden Themen: Verbrennen statt verkippen Neues Gesetz für den Restmüll Spritze gegen Schuppenflechte Neuer Wirkstoff blockiert das Immunsystem Formel für den Frühling Die Mathematik des Pflanzenwachstums Deutschland, 2005
