Compiler Warning (level 4) C4125

decimal digit terminates octal escape sequence

The compiler evaluates the octal number without the decimal digit and assumes the decimal digit is a character.

// C4125a.cpp
// compile with: /W4
char array1[] = "\709"; // C4125
int main()
{
}

If the digit 9 is intended as a character, correct the example as follows:

// C4125b.cpp
// compile with: /W4
char array[] = "\0709";  // C4125 String containing "89"
int main()
{
}
