I'm using gawk for the effective processing of table like numerical data.
However, typically I don't use special awk script, but just call it from
the command line.
For that reason I only can use  the very limited number of built-in
numerical functions.

Therefore my wish:

Could you implement e.g. a min() and max() function. Ideally these should
accept arbitrary
numbers of input arguments. I.e.

min($1, $2)
min($1, $3, $4, $5)

and so on should be possible.
