Constructs new underlying container of the container adaptor from a variety of data sources.
1) Copyconstructs the underlying container
c
with the contents of cont
. Copyconstructs the comparison functor comp
with the contents of compare
. Calls std::make_heap(c.begin(), c.end(), comp).}} This is also the default constructor. (until C++11)2) Moveconstructs the underlying container
c
with std::move(cont). Moveconstructs the comparison functor comp
with std::move(compare). Calls std::make_heap(c.begin(), c.end(), comp). This is also the default constructor. (since C++11)3) Copy constructor. The adaptor is copyconstructed with the contents of other.c. The comparison functor is constructed with std::move(other.comp). (implicitly declared)
4) Move constructor. The adaptor is constructed with std::move(other.c).The comparison functor is constructed with std::move(other.comp). (implicitly declared)
510) The following constructors are only defined if std::uses_allocator<container_type, Alloc>::value == true, that is, if the underlying container is an allocatoraware container (true for all standard library containers).
5) Constructs the underlying container using
alloc
as allocator. Effectively calls c(alloc). comp
is valueinitialized.6) Constructs the underlying container using
alloc
as allocator. Effectively calls c(alloc). Copyconstructs comp
from compare
.7) Constructs the underlying container with the contents of
cont
and using alloc
as allocator. Effectively calls c(cont, alloc). Copyconstructs comp
from compare
.8) Constructs the underlying container with the contents of
cont
using move semantics while utilising alloc
as allocator. Effectively calls c(std::move(cont), alloc). Copyconstructs comp
from compare
.9) Constructs the adaptor with the contents of
other.c
and using alloc
as allocator. Effectively calls c(athor.c, alloc). Copyconstructs comp
from other.comp
.10) Constructs the adaptor with the contents of
other
using move semantics while utilising alloc
as allocator. Effectively calls c(std::move(other.c), alloc). Moveconstructs comp
from other.comp
.11) Copyconstructs
c
from cont
and comp
from compare
. Then calls c.insert(c.end(), first, last);, and then calls std::make_heap(c.begin(), c.end(), comp);.12) Moveconstructs
c
from std::move(cont)
and comp
from std::move(compare)
. Then calls c.insert(c.end(), first, last);, and then calls std::make_heap(c.begin(), c.end(), comp);.Contents 
Parameters
alloc    allocator to use for all memory allocations of the underlying container 
other    another container adaptor to be used as source to initialize the underlying container 
cont    container to be used as source to initialize the underlying container 
compare    the comparison function object to initialize the underlying comparison functor 
first, last    range of elements to initialize with 
Type requirements  
Alloc must meet the requirements of Allocator .
 
Container must meet the requirements of Container . The constructors (510) are only defined if Container meets the requirements of AllocatorAwareContainer
 
InputIt must meet the requirements of InputIterator .

Complexity

46) Constant.
7) O(N log(N) comparisons, where N is cont.size().

Run this code
#include <queue> #include <vector> #include <iostream> #include <functional> int main() { std::priority_queue<int> c1; c1.push(5); std::cout << c1.size() << '\n'; std::priority_queue<int> c2(c1); std::cout << c2.size() << '\n'; std::vector<int> vec={3, 1, 4, 1, 5}; std::priority_queue<int> c3(std::less<int>(), vec); std::cout << c3.size() << '\n'; }
Output:
