+- Fixed various character escaping issues. There are still some

+- Exposed dbInfoToModuleFiles for creating database description

+- Added <<- operator to make creating constant records for insert

+- Added _length query operator for getting the length of a string.
+- Made record implementation more general.
+- Lots of smaller fixes to code and documentation.
