std::numeric_limits<T>::max: std::numeric_limits<T>::max

NAME

std::numeric_limits<T>::max - std::numeric_limits<T>::max

Synopsis


Defined in header <limits>
static T max() throw(); (until C++11)
static constexpr T max() noexcept; (since C++11)

Example


Demonstrates the use of max() with some fundamental types and some standard library typedefs (the output is system-specific)
// Run this code


  #include <limits>
  #include <cstddef>
  #include <iostream>
  int main()
  {
      std::cout << "short: " << std::dec << std::numeric_limits<short>::max()
                << " or " << std::hex << std::showbase << std::numeric_limits<short>::max() << '\n'
                << "int: " << std::dec << std::numeric_limits<int>::max()
                << " or " << std::hex << std::numeric_limits<int>::max() << '\n' << std::dec
                << "streamsize: " << std::dec << std::numeric_limits<std::streamsize>::max()
                << " or " << std::hex << std::numeric_limits<std::streamsize>::max() << '\n'
                << "size_t: " << std::dec << std::numeric_limits<std::size_t>::max()
                << " or " << std::hex << std::numeric_limits<std::size_t>::max() << '\n'
                << "float: " << std::numeric_limits<float>::max()
                << " or " << std::hexfloat << std::numeric_limits<float>::max() << '\n'
                << "double: " << std::defaultfloat << std::numeric_limits<double>::max()
                << " or " << std::hexfloat << std::numeric_limits<double>::max() << '\n';
  }

Output:


  short: 32767 or 0x7fff
  int: 2147483647 or 0x7fffffff
  size_t: 18446744073709551615 or 0xffffffffffffffff
  streamsize: 9223372036854775807 or 0x7fffffffffffffff
  float: 3.40282e+38 or 0x1.fffffep+127
  double: 1.79769e+308 or 0x1.fffffffffffffp+1023
