019 being equal to 17 decimal is an attribute of the VAX PCC lexer;
it is not a part of the C language definition.

Without disregarding the many baroque qualities of the language
definition, one must realize that 'net.lang.c' is a newsgroup for
Talmudic dissection of Kernighan and Ritchie--weird questions are
expected.  ANSI C should help clarify some of the ambiguities.
God help us when net.lang.ada really begins to be used!
