/* Note: MIN, MAX are also defined in <sys/param.h> on some systems
(glibc, IRIX, HP-UX, OSF/1). Therefore you might get warnings about
MIN, MAX macro redefinitions on some systems; the workaround is to
#include this file as the last one among the #include list. */
/* Before we define the following symbols we get the <limits.h> file
since otherwise we get redefinitions on some systems if <limits.h> is
included after this file. Likewise for <sys/param.h>.
If more than one of these system headers define MIN and MAX, pick just
one of the headers (because the definitions most likely are the same). */
# include <limits.h>
# include <sys/param.h>
/* Note: MIN and MAX should be used with two arguments of the
same type. They might not return the minimum and maximum of their two
arguments, if the arguments have different types or have unusual
floating-point values. For example, on a typical host with 32-bit 'int',
64-bit 'long long', and 64-bit IEEE 754 'double' types:
MAX (-1, 2147483648) returns 4294967295.
MAX (9007199254740992.0, 9007199254740993) returns 9007199254740992.0.
MAX (NaN, 0.0) returns 0.0.
MAX (+0.0, -0.0) returns -0.0.
and in each case the answer is in some sense bogus. */
