```template<class RandomAccessIterator> constexpr void pop_heap(RandomAccessIterator first, RandomAccessIterator last); template<class RandomAccessIterator, class Compare> constexpr void pop_heap(RandomAccessIterator first, RandomAccessIterator last, Compare comp); template<random_­access_­iterator I, sentinel_­for<I> S, class Comp = ranges::less, class Proj = identity> requires sortable<I, Comp, Proj> constexpr I ranges::pop_heap(I first, S last, Comp comp = {}, Proj proj = {}); template<random_­access_­range R, class Comp = ranges::less, class Proj = identity> requires sortable<iterator_t<R>, Comp, Proj> constexpr borrowed_iterator_t<R> ranges::pop_heap(R&& r, Comp comp = {}, Proj proj = {}); ```
Let comp be less{} and proj be identity{} for the overloads with no parameters by those names.
Preconditions: The range [first, last) is a valid non-empty heap with respect to comp and proj.
For the overloads in namespace std, RandomAccessIterator meets the Cpp17ValueSwappable requirements ([swappable.requirements]) and the type of *first meets the Cpp17MoveConstructible (Table 32) and Cpp17MoveAssignable (Table 34) requirements.
Effects: Swaps the value in the location first with the value in the location last - 1 and makes [first, last - 1) into a heap with respect to comp and proj.
Returns: last for the overloads in namespace ranges.
Complexity: At most comparisons and twice as many projections.
