2nd and 3rd paragraph

The definition of the 2nd form of brace expansion says: "Bash ignores leading zeros on incr, always treating it as a decimal value." The following paragraph says: "Thus a leading zero on incr causes it to be treated as an octal value." These two statements contradict each other.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Hi. Please remove the text that says "Bash ignores leading zeros on incr, always treating it as a decimal value." Thanks!
