I proposed discriminated unions way back and there was no interest. My
approach was to use a type switch to access them.

Jackie,

As a practical matter, in Go, the solution is likely to be along the
following lines:

package main

import (
"fmt"
"math"
)

func IMax(x, y int64) int64 {
if x > y {
return x
}
return y
}

func IMin(x, y int64) int64 {
if x < y {
return x
}
return y
}

func FMax(x, y float64) float64 {
return math.Max(x, y)
}

func FMin(x, y float64) float64 {
return math.Min(x, y)

}

func main() {
var a int = 1
var b float32 = 2.718
fmt.Println(FMax(float64(a), float64(b)))
var aa uint8 = 8
var bb int32 = 32
fmt.Println(IMax(int64(aa), int64(bb)))

}

Hi fellow gophers,

Sorry if I sound very ignorant, I'm not a full time developer. I'm sure

type Number union {
int
float32
}

func (n Number) Max(m Number) Number {
if n.(type) == int && m.(type) == int{
if n.(int) > m.(int) {
return n
}
return m
}
if float32(n) > float32(m) {
return n
}
return m
}

func main() {
var a int = 1
var b float32 = 2
fmt.Println(Number(a).Max(b))
}

Although it's not very clean, but I think it should have compile time
checks?
