Max value of untyped constants

I just came to a conclusion by trial & error that untyped constants may have a value of 1e646_456_992 at max, I couldn’t find any relevant info in golang specifications though.

It appears that that is the maximum value that can fit into a 32-bit exponent based on my understanding of this comment/issue: cmd/compile: truncates constants · Issue #11326 · golang/go · GitHub

I’ve looked through the specs but couldn’t handle exactly what it meant, it’s all clear; thank you! :partying_face:
