        #123r10 should read as 173 (octal) not an error.
        (ai:lisp;sharpm fasl)
    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.
