Example

var reallyBigInteger = '179769313486231570814527423731704356798070567525844996598917476803157260780028538760589558632766878171540458953514382464234321326889464182768467546703537516986049910576551282076245490090389328944075868508455133942304583236903222948165808559332123348274797826204144723168738177180919299881250404026184124858368';

assert.equal(bigIntegerMax('1', reallyBigInteger), reallyBigInteger);

// async
