          Issue ID: 17510
           Summary: How could 509 be a byte value?
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
               URL: http://dlang.org/
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3

In http://dlang.org/spec/lex.html:

Byte value in octal.
For example: \775 represents the character with the value 509.
509 cannot be byte as byte means (signed) 8-bit value... Possibility_1: "Unicode character in octal. For example \775 represents the Unicode character which code is (decimally) 509." Possibility_2: "ubyte value in octal." \775 is not allowed (gives an error). The maximum octal number allowed is 377 (decimally 255). (More cases may be possible.) --
