Bug Description

There seems no way for the IOC console debugging tools to print the info items connected to a record instance.

A streamline way to add this functionality would be adding a new verbosity level "5" to the dbpr command, to make it print all info items in addition to all record fields.

tags: added: infoitem
removed: info

info() tags are printed by dbDumpRecord(). Of course this function operates on recordtype, so it is difficult to debug just one record. dbpr() seems as good a place as any to print them.

It might also be good to refactor dbDumpRecord() to create a new dbDump* function which prints a single record.

Dirk's new "dbli" command now in 3.16 may help, although it can't limit its output to the info fields of a specific record since the pattern argument matches the info-item's name, not the record name.

Please close this bug if that is sufficient.
