Description: |
Returns the largest number in the model representing the same type and kind parameters as the argument. | ||

Class: |
Inquiry function; Generic | ||

Arguments: | X must be of type integer or real; it can be scalar or array valued. | ||

Results: |
The result is a scalar of the same type
and kind parameters as X. If X is of type integer, the result has
the value r^{q} - 1. If X is of type real, the result has the
value (1 - b^{-p})b^{emax}.
Integer parameters r and q are defined in
Section D.1; real parameters b,
p, and e are defined in
Section D.2. _{max} |

**Examples**

If X is of type REAL(4), HUGE (X) has the value (1 - 2^{-24}) x 2^{128}.
