Write a code in C++ of prim's algorithm implementation using heap.


What I have tried:

Can't get to much idea. I am still studying Data Structure

An interesting problem, which is described here[^], including how to use a heap. I wasn't sure if the question meant "use the C++ heap" (dynamic memory allocation) or "use a heap data structure" (which is what the article suggests to improve the algorithm's efficiency).

This isn't just a few lines of code, so I doubt you'll find anyone here who will supply you with it. Besides, that wouldn't do you any good, because you're supposed to learn from this assignment, and being spoon-fed the solution wouldn't do that at all. The article contains a good description of the algorithm, so get to work. This is not a trivial exercise, so you must already have C++ experience. Once you have some code that tries to implement it, post it here if you've got questions or problems. But again, in the same way that this isn't a code-to-order service, it's not a debugging service for those who simply say, "Why doesn't my code work?"

While we are more than willing to help those that are stuck, that doesn't mean that we are here to do it all for you! We can't do all the work, you are either getting paid for this, or it's part of your grades and it wouldn't be at all fair for us to do it all for you.

So we need you to do the work, and we will help you when you get stuck. That doesn't mean we will give you a step by step solution you can hand in!
Start by explaining where you are at the moment, and what the next step in the process is. Then tell us what you have tried to get that next step working, and what happened when you did.

If you are having problems getting started at all, then this may help: How to Write Code to Solve a Problem, A Beginner's Guide[^]
