digitalmars.D.learn - BinaryHeap as member

I need a priority queue of integers whose elements are not

The following gist illustrates the problem I'm having:
https://run.dlang.io/gist/92876b2c4d8c77cdc68f1ca61e7e8e44?compiler=dmd

The `Foo` class is supposed to wrap a binary heap (to be used as 
priority queue) and order its contents according to `o.isLess`. 
However I do not manage to initialise the according member 
variable.

Obviously, with the `h` member having type `BinaryHeap(int[], 
"a<b")` and the constructor trying to assign a 
`BinaryHeap!(int[], f)` the types do not quite match (line 18).

Maybe I'm missing something obvious or approaching this in the 
wrong way. Do you have any suggestions on how to achieve the 
desired result?

In case it helps, here is the functionality I'm trying to port to D https://pastebin.com/CWAiEy40. I'm still struggling with properly defining the member in D though.

In the course of writing a minimal example I removed more than necessary in the previous pastebin (the passed IntOrder has not even been used). Thus here is the corrected one: https://pastebin.com/SKae08GT. I'm trying to port this to D.

Throwing together a sample involves wrapping the value in a new value. Still the idea is put across... Not sure if this is the best way to do this, but only takes a little dereferencing to access the value. Compiled w/DMD v2.069.2 [code] import std.container.binaryheap; import std.range : iota; import std.array; import std.stdio; void main() { int len = 10; int[] a = iota(len).array; auto foo = new WeightedHeap!int([0,2,4,6,8], a); foreach(v; foo.h) writeln(v.weight, "\t", *v.v); } struct WeightedHeap(T) { this(int[] order, T[] arr) { foreach(i, ref v; arr) { a ~= E(order[i%$], &v); } h = BinaryHeap!(E[])(a); } E[] a; BinaryHeap!(E[]) h; // alias h this; static struct E { int weight; T* v; // alias v this; int opCmp(E a) const { return a.weight-weight; } } } [/code] Output: Weight Value 0 5 0 0 2 1 2 6 4 7 4 2 6 3 6 8 8 4 8 9

Thanks for actually implementing the workaround you suggested on the IRC for my minmal example. I'm using this for now as it seems that using delegates as predicates is problematic in my use case. It still feels kind of dirty though, and maybe I'll eventually just implement a standard min-heap that is templated with a comparator (as in C++).
