A ds_priority queue is a special data structure similar to a
here the queue of values is ordered by the priorities (always real
numbers) that the values have been assigned. This structure can be
very useful for constructing leaderboards or information lists
where the importance of each entry can be weighted.
NOTE: As with all dynamic resources, data structures take up memory and so should always be destroyed when no longer needed to prevent memory leaks which will slow down and eventually crash your game.
The following functions exist that deal with ds_priority queues:
NOTE: if you need to check if a data structure exists, you can use the ds_exists() function.
