The mbed IDE doesn't understand octal numbers.

03 Sep 2014

There's a bug in the mbed IDE: the fancy pop-up that shows information about literal values doesn't understand octal values.

Is this the best place to report it?

To reproduce:

  • Open any project.
  • Type an octal literal (such as 012) and position the caret over it to make the information pop-up appear.

The pop-up will describe it as "Decimal 012", and show a breakdown for the value 12. (The decimal value in this case is 10.)

Thanks, Jacob
