What is the best pie you can get with 9 digits?
You are allowed a maximum of nine ASCII characters (0x20-0x7e) only, this includes spaces and brackets etc., to write a representation of a number.

All standard mathematical symbols and functions etc. are allowed.

So I will start the ball rolling with:

"9+9+9+9+9"

But I'm sure you can do better.

infinity is not a number anyway, so even if there was an infinity key it wouldn't count Wink

factorial? 99999999!
powers? 9^9^9^9^9 (might need brackets though)

The largest named number is googolplex - 10^googol (hah! 9 chars)

Accept. Without brackets use standard parsing to get the value

Accept

Accept, but not very big, multifactorials are maybe not what you expect.

Nice link, how about a hyperfactorial - H(999999)

Wow, this is getting too esoteric for me...

9($^9$$$)

the ^ applied to operator means the composition (so 9($^8)=9$$$$$$$$)

or even...

G($^G$$$)

small numbers

-ln(0)
abs(1/0)
(1/0)^2
ta2(pi/2)
ro90("8")

Crying or Very sad

Accept, but not with the explanation below, only accept for ^=power, in which case it doesn't make sense really, but the syntax is allowed

Not accept, I don't think this is standard, you are not allowed to make up your own definition of symbols.

edit: Accept Graham's number.

All not accept, results are undefined, or infinity, and thus not numbers.

It is standard to denote the repeated function composition in the same way as a power of number, see functional powers. I explained what it means just in case someone didn't know it, I didn't "make up my own definition".

Okay then, I accept, but it doesn't feel right to me.

But it doesn't matter really, because, so far, no one has come even close to putting a REALLY big number.
