Event simulation using priority queues

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2010-04-01
Im writing a program which deals with a character going to a wizard cave at a certain time.  In a text file contains the characters' arrival time and request time.  I need to put  the times in a vector then into a priority queue, where the lowest time is the highest priority.  Can I have any help or guidance to start on project.  What type of classes do I need and what do I need to contain in these classes?

#include <iostream>
//for example
#include <iostream>
#include <list>
#include <queue>
int main(){
  std::priority_queue<int, std::vector<int>, std::greater<int> > intPQueue;
  std::cout << "values removed from priority queue" << std::endl;
  int size=intPQueue.size();
  for( int i=0; i<size; i++ ){
    std::cout << << std::endl;
