This is an incomplete code for implementing a Huffman Code using priority queue.

I have been given this code and i have to write the insert and delete functions

using priority queue.

However ,I am not able to understand somethigs like what is rootnodes here,what are exactly p1,p,p2?

Should i make priority queue with linked list or arrays?

Please help.
