Return maximum value

Note: Many $functions have been deprecated in favor of Object Oriented methods. There is currently no direct OO equivalent for the $Max function.

The $Max function returns the highest value from a list of as many as eight arguments.


%num = $Max(x1,x2,x3,x4,x5,x6,x7,x8)

Omitted arguments to $Max are ignored.


$MAX(-6, 5, 0, 4, 3, 7, -7, 1) = 7 $MAX(-6,4) = 4 $MAX(4,-6,70.3) = 70.3 $MAX(-6, ,-5) = -5 $MAX(-6,0,-5) = 0

Usage notes

  • Any arguments containing non-numeric values are omitted from the comparison.
  • If all the arguments are found to contain non-numeric values, then $Max returns the value 0.
