  • Coincidentally, I made that exact error in ruby yesterday. Fortunately, '8' is not a valid octal digit so vim's syntax highlighting alerted me to a problem before I even tried to run it.
  • vim i_ctrl-a will only interpret a leading-zero number as octal if there are only octal digits in it. That is why I only write code in the Vim scripting language. No bugs possible!
