max
PrototypeMax is an overloaded name; there are actually two max functions.template <class T> const T& max(const T& a, const T& b); template <class T, class BinaryPredicate> const T& max(const T& a, const T& b, BinaryPredicate comp); DescriptionMax returns the greater of its two arguments; it returns the first argument if neither is greater than the other.The two versions of max differ in how they define whether one element is less than another. The first version compares objects using operator<, and the second compares objects using the function object comp. DefinitionDefined in the standard header algorithm, and in the nonstandard backwardcompatibility header algo.h.Requirements on typesFor the first version:
