Maximum of a Set of Elements (Mlmode)
Syntax z = max(x)
[zindex] = max(x)
w = max(xy)

Description
Compute the maximum of a set of elements where x and y are character, integer, real, or double-precision matrices.

z
The return value z has the same type as x. If x is a vector, z is a scalar equal to the maximum element of x. Otherwise, it is a row vector with the same column dimension as x and with j-th element equal to the maximum element in the j-th column of x.

index
The return value index is an integer vector with the same dimension as z. If x is a vector, index is the index in x of its maximum element. Otherwise, the j-th element of index is the row index of the maximum element in the j-th column of x

w
is the element-by-element maximum of the elements of x and y.

Example
If in Mlmode you enter
     max( [1, 2 , 3] )
O-Matrix will respond
     3
