# MAX

math

Returns the greater of two numeric values.

The `MAX` function consumes two numeric parameters from the top of the stack and pushes back the greatest value.

Since 2.6.0, this function can be applied to a LIST of numerical values and a numerical value. The order of the parameter is very important in that case: considering this function as `F`, the result of `[ \$a \$b \$c ] F` is `\$a \$b F \$c F ]` but the result of `[ \$a \$b ] \$c F` is `[ \$a \$c F \$b \$c F ]`.

Since 2.7.1, this function can be applied to a GTS of numerical values. This is very similar to how this function works on LISTs, considering the values of the GTS. In that case, the order of the parameters also matters and the result is either a GTS or a single numerical value.

MAX is available since version 1.0.0.

### Examples

1000 2000 MAX 3.14 42.5 MAX 1000 11.1 MAX 11.1 1000 MAX NaN 1000 MAX 0 NaN MAX
[ 1000 2000 3000 ] MAX [ 3.14 42.5 ] 10.4 MAX
NEWGTS 1 NaN NaN NaN 2 ADDVALUE 2 NaN NaN NaN 20 ADDVALUE 3 NaN NaN NaN 21 ADDVALUE 4 NaN NaN NaN 12 ADDVALUE 5 NaN NaN NaN 42 ADDVALUE 6 NaN NaN NaN 7 ADDVALUE 'gts' STORE \$gts MAX \$gts 8 MAX

### Examples

return MAX(1000, 2000), MAX(3.14, 42.5), MAX(1000, 11.1), MAX(11.1, 1000), MAX(NaN, 1000), MAX(0, NaN)
return MAX([1000, 2000, 3000]), MAX([3.14, 42.5], 10.4)
gts = NEWGTS() ADDVALUE(gts, 1, NaN, NaN, NaN, 2) ADDVALUE(gts, 2, NaN, NaN, NaN, 20) ADDVALUE(gts, 3, NaN, NaN, NaN, 21) ADDVALUE(gts, 4, NaN, NaN, NaN, 12) ADDVALUE(gts, 5, NaN, NaN, NaN, 42) ADDVALUE(gts, 6, NaN, NaN, NaN, 7) return MAX(gts), MAX(gts, 8)
