I fixed the problem with the parser and incorrect interpretation of binary complex numbers here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/08042580fe93).

Indeed, but this is really another bug.

Your text is good, I think we shall push it in that form.

Kai - yes, looks like a bug to me. I think the parser is only counting ones in the string, so the trailing "i" or "j" is seen as an additional bit.

Thank you for your patch. I reviewed your text (file #39788) and made some clarifications from my point of view. If you agree or propose a 2nd review, I can push your changes.

I noticed maybe another bug. Can you confirm:

Not as expected:

To open another bug report?

Thanks for the report. This should be treated together with bug #50305.

@Ernst Reissner: Would you like to find a suitable place in the manual https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/ and think about a good documentation of the features?

in 4.2.0 number literals like 0b1001 for binary representation
and 0xFF for hex representation are added but still not documented.
