Hi all,

I stumbled upon a weird behaviour in hexadecimal constants in Lua
5.2.0 (and LuaJIT 2.0.0-beta8).

When adding a hexadecimal number ending with E it gives a "malformed
number" error, unless I insert a blank space between E and the plus
sign. Looks like the lexer is tokenizing it as an invalid floating
point number. Tests follow...

> print(0xE)
> print(0xE+9)
stdin:1: malformed number near '0xE+9'
> print(0xE +9)
> print(0xA+9)

All the best,
Alexandra Barros.
