Dear all,

Can anybody tell me why parseInt("000007") returns 7, but parseInt("000008") returns 0, and parseInt("000011") returns 9? Do I need to write a function that strips the leading zero's? If so, does anybody have this function to hand?

Many thanks,

Ben.

because if you begin a number with 0 it is parsed as an octal (base 8)

try this:  parseInt("000008",10)
