Concerning "youdianr, etc.", I would like to know more precisely when I have to use you dianr, you yi dianr, yidianr? What is the grammatical structure of these different uses? Thks. JC Delaunay

Basically they are the same meaning.
"you dianr=you yi dianr", Which literary means "a little bit", like "天有点儿热。"（It's a little bit hot.）
"yi dian er" is more like a measure word, like "下次早一点儿来。"（Please come a little earlier next time.）
