What is the reason for getting two different max of a
vector from two functions max() and summary()? Here is
an example,

> set.seed(2222)
> x <- sample(x=1:100000, size=10000, replace=T)
> max(x)
[1] 99992
> summary(x)
   Min. 1st Qu.  Median    Mean 3rd Qu.    Max. 
      6   24510   49950   50020   75040   99990 

Which value is the correct one? I had this problem
while I was working with microarry data.
