Control Data NOS/VE Easter Egg - Maximum Values
The Control Data NOS/VE Operating System had a command language that was very Pascal-like. It allowed defining types, as well as variables. Types and variables could be simple items, records, arrays, or combinations. Simple types could be booleans, integers, floats, strings, files, etc.
They also defined several constants that could be use in Command Language programs. MaxInteger was the largest integer available; MaxFloat was for floats, etc.
Also part of the Operating System was the constant MaxHeadroom. It defined the string "Here's MMMMMMMax!"
IIRC to see this you could do
I never found out why it was there. It was not in any documentation for the system.
