INT_MAX constant

What is the INT_MAX constant value?

Short answer
Just a big number. Why bother with this?
Somewhat exact answer
It depends technically of the compiler used when ppmck is built, but you can safely assume it is 2147483647, or $2^{31} - 1$, because of the size in bits of integers in standard C implementations found on computers. When ppmckc retrieves a number, it puts the result in a int data type1.

While the second point gives a value to this constant, the real good answer to keep in mind is the first one :) .
