debugger: parse octal expressions (prefixed by '0') #980
I thought the standard Intel letter suffixes (h for hexadecimals, o or q for octals) might be a more appropriate syntax to implement in the MAME debugger. I don't know, though; perhaps it's more important to maintain bug-compatibility with C++ and the many other descendants of the typeless language Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie implemented on the 18-bit PDP-7.
I'd suggest to accept prefix
It's quite irritating if addresses printed before e.g. the dasm output are octal, and even without leading zeroes, and you have to enter decimal or 0x prefixed breakpoint adresses.
