My assumptions about info.vdr turned out to be wrong. (Thanks to 
Christian Jacobsen for pointing that out)
So here is the next minor revision.

You only need this revision of you (intent to) use VDR 1.3.25 and use 
the "done"-functionality of Master-Timer. Otherwise there is no relevant 
change in this relase.

- info.vdr handling was based on wrong assumptions, "process_sumamry.pl" 
  still didn't work with info.vdr-files
- "--noask" option of undone.pl still asked. (Thanks to Christian too. I 
guess he tried this while debugging the above problem. :-) )
- "--noask" option now prints what it does
   (undone.pl, undonefromvdr.pl, donefromvdr.pl)
- Skip " (MT-ID:0)" in output before programming timers into VDR.(Thanks 
to Christian again.)

Bis denn

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
