Numeric form is tested using the regular expression

`eshell-number-regexp'.
NOTE: If you find that numeric conversions are intefering with the
specification of filenames (for example, in calling `find-file', or
some other Lisp function that deals with files, not numbers), add the
following in your .emacs file:
(put 'find-file 'eshell-no-numeric-conversions t)
Any function with the property `eshell-no-numeric-conversions' set to
a non-nil value, will be passed strings, not numbers, even when an
argument matches `eshell-number-regexp'."
