The priority queue is a data structure with each element has a priority associated with it. The high priority element served before low priority element.

Priority queues provide extra flexibility over sorting mechanism. Write a program to implement the priority queue.



Unsorted array before sorting from Array: [12, 34, 56, 23, 45, 78, 46]
Unsorted array before sorting from Heap: 78 45 56 12 23 34 46 
Sorted array after sorting from Priority Queue: 78 56 46 45 34 23 12
