#123r10 should read as 173 (octal) not an error.
According to all maclisp documentation, "ibase"s can only
be between 1 and 36., since there are no general ways to
get digits beyond "Z".
Additionally, beware of the following: due to the ambiguity
of syntax, the number part of a #nR must be preceeded with a "+" or
"-" if it has non-decimal digits. This latter point is documented
in the NEW RECENT, and for maclisp in general. (because, in general
"1A" would be taken as a symbol instead of a number.)
Then the error message should be fixed.
