octal

    0
    140

    n. A number in base-8 notation. Because there are only eight values to represent, only the digits 0–7 are necessary. Octal notation is useful for representing 3-bit values. In C and various related languages, an integer constant will be assumed octal when it begins with a 0. Be aware that leading a decimal number with a 0 is a sure way to create a bug, since the compiler will only warn you if an 8 or 9 follows.
