SubjectRe: module parameters permission
From
Date
The module macro is a proc_macro. This is written in a way to only accept one single iteral at that position. So that is an expected behaviour with the current implementation.
If needed, this macro could be extended with functionality to deal with that case, but if octal values are preferred, I don’t see a reason to introduce that level of complexity.
