Though why anyone would consider expressing a literal of more than four bits in binary is beyond me.
(Side note about the "beings with 10 fingers" comment... Back when I used to wait tables I developed a finger counting method that, while is actually base 5 (1,2,3,4,10,11,12,13,14,20, etc...), I called "groups of 5" that I used for counting number of chairs or people in a room. Quickly move my fingers behind my back, and then when back in the safety of the waiter's station or kitchen count 25 for the left thumb, 5 for each left finger, and 1 for each right digit. To the customers it just looks like I'm standing there looking over the room with my hands behind my back. My short-term memory for numbers is so short, I needed to keep track on my fingers so I didn't loose count if someone asked me where the bathroom is... So much for base 10 being default...)
int c3=076; <--- This is troublesomeint c4=098; <--- Ahhhh!!!!!! (actually throws a compiler error!)
Everyone's favorite trivial change: 8 and 9 are not octal digits
Except maybe for those programming languages which number the months of the year from 0 to 11 (such as C and ECMAScript).
