result : the greater of the two values (keeping its type integer
or double)

Author

Description

This function returns the greater of two values by removing the other
one from the stack. Hence the output type is the same as the
respective input type (integer or double).

Alternatives: Functions max_i_i max_i_d max_d_i max_d_d (all
undocumented) where i is standing for integer and for double as
arguments -> behaviour and synopsis are the same.
