|A Tinderbox Reference File : Actions & Rules : Set-based operators : max() operator|
The v4.0.0 max() operator returns the largest item in a set.
Both the operators max() and min() use lexical comparison in most cases, but numeric comparison if the context is numeric, e.g.:
Since "Width" is numeric, max() will be return 100.
Since "Name" is a string, max() will return 2.
If you don't have a set, create one on the fly:
MyMax = max(collect(all,$MyNum))
A 'lexical sort' is a case-insensitive sort (Aardvark,aarvark,ABLE) and for numbers "2;70;100;" would sort in order "100;2;70" (i.e. ordered on first number first - a number 'computer sort' )
