I just noticed that:
//IN CHROME JS CONSOLE
parseInt("03010123"); //prints: 03010123
parseInt("03010123"); //prints: 790611
Undefined behavior occurs when the string being passed to parseInt has a leading 0, and you leave off the radix parameter.
An integer that represents the radix of the above mentioned string. Always specify this parameter to eliminate reader confusion and to guarantee predictable behavior. Different implementations produce different results when a radix is not specified.
Some browsers default to base 8, and some to base 10. I'm not sure what the docs say about Node, but clearly it's assuming base 8, since
3010123 in base 8 is
790611 in base 10.
