Note that the integer part of a floating point number cannot look like
! an octal integer, though the exponent may look like an octal literal
! but will always be interpreted using radix 10.  For example,
! \samp{1e010} is legal, while \samp{07.1} is a syntax error.
The allowed range of floating point literals is
implementation-dependent.
