Hi! 10 is the decimal ASCII code for the newline character. This is how
strings are actually usually represented in Erlang: a list of code

If you want to have the parser parse the integer 10, you probably
need to supply it as a string:

9> time_parser:tokens("10").

"10" is in fact syntax sugar for [$1, $0]. The dollar character($)
followed by a character is evaluated to the numerical value of the
character. For example:

1> $\n.
