@max(value, value)
return the maximum of its two arguments.

Values in Antescofo are totally ordered. The order between two elements of different types is implementation dependent. However, the order on numeric is as expected (numeric ordering: the integers are embedded in the decimals). For two argument of the same type, the ordering is as expected (lexicographic ordering for string, and tab, etc.).

See @min, @min_key, @max_key, @min_val, @max_val, @sort.
