Syntax of priority queue

0 votes

Why do we require three parameters in order to create a priority queue with user-defined comparison?

priority_queue<Node*, vector<Node*>, comp> pq;

Why can't we create our own comparison operator by writing something like priority_queue<Node*, comp> pq;(removed vectornode*>)? 

What is the function of vector<node*>?
Also, how are the elements selected for comparison and then pushed into the queue?

We must first include the queue header file in order to establish a priority queue in C++.

#include <queue>

Once we import this file, we can create a priority_queue using the following syntax:

priority_queue<type> pq;

In this case, type denotes the data type that will be stored in the priority queue. 

 For  example

// create a priority queue of integer type
priority_queue<int> pq_integer;

// create a priority queue of string type
priority_queue<string> pq_string;

Cases of static and dynamic binding in C++

When an object's static type is used to associate it with a member function, this is known as static binding (understand the type of its class). When a pointer or reference is associated with a member function based on the dynamic type of the object, this is known as dynamic binding (understand the instance of the variable at runtime). Before continuing, keep in mind that dynamic binding only works with pointers, references, and virtual functions for the base class. Because everything needed to call the function is known at compile time, the first call is a static binding (also known as early binding). Derived1 d1(1, 10); d1.display_data(); You already know that the d1 instance is a Derived1 automatic variable, and that it will call the Derived1::display data method (). The first condition is incorrect: d1 is neither a pointer nor a reference. The second condition isn't acceptable:  There is no virtual Derived1::display data. The second call is for ...READ MORE
