    Prune most-positive-fixnum from Lisp source · a4a3c92e
    Paul Eggert authored
    I looked through all instances of most-negative-fixnum
    and most-positive-fixnum in the Lisp source code, and
    when it was easy I removed assumptions that integers
    fit in fixnums.  The remaining instances are either
    nontrivial to fix, or are inherent to the algorithm.
    * lisp/arc-mode.el (archive-l-e): Do not convert to float,
    since we have bignums now.  All uses changed.
    * lisp/calc/calc.el (math-bignum):
    Don’t special-case most-negative-fixnum.
    * lisp/calendar/parse-time.el (parse-time-string):
    * lisp/emacs-lisp/edebug.el (edebug-read-special):
    * lisp/emacs-lisp/package.el (package--remove-hidden):
    * lisp/gnus/nnfolder.el (nnfolder-read-folder):

    * lisp/org/org-agenda.el (org-cmp-ts):
    * lisp/window.el (window--resize-child-windows):
    Avoid arbitrary limit to most-positive-fixnum or to
    * lisp/calendar/time-date.el (days-to-time):
    * lisp/erc/erc-dcc.el (erc-unpack-int):
    Don’t worry about integer overflow.

    * lisp/erc/erc-dcc.el (erc-most-positive-int-bytes)
    (erc-most-positive-int-msb): Remove; no longer needed.
    * lisp/net/imap.el (imap-string-to-integer): Remove; unused.
    * lisp/org/org-element.el (org-element--cache-generate-key):
    Document fixnum limitation.
