max

 

 

Description

The max function returns the largest value among its arguments.

When to use

The max function is used to determine the largest value from a set of values.

 

Syntax

(max num1 num2 ...)



Name Description AIS Types
num1 num2 ...Any Number of valuesNumber


Returns:

The largest value from the set of values provided.

 

Examples

Here are a number of links to Lambda coding examples which contain this instruction in various use cases.

Example_Number_max_001

This example shows how the max function returns the largest value from a set of Integers and Numbers.
