Setting octal values

I downloaded a program from AnalogX called pCalc, which is meant to let me perform my programming calculations faster and easier, etc. I forgot how to tell it that one of the numbers in the expression field was an octal value. I remember reading how to do it somewhere, but I can't find it again. Any help you can offer will be much appreciated.
Traditionally, octal values are prefixed with either "0" or "\" so 300 decimal is 0454 or \454.
