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 adata type`int`^{1}.

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