## Scalar Data

### Numbers

Write number literals in any format you want.
(Internally they will be stored as double-precision floating-point values.)

Examples:

$a = 134 ;
$a = -2004 ;
$a = 56.79 ;
$a = -56.7913 ;
$a = 7.25e24 ;
$a = -12E-29 ;

Do not start the number with zero!

Example:
$a = 0377 ;

This is 377 octal, same as 255 decimal.
