Converts the max heap [
first
,
last
)
into a sorted range in ascending order. The resulting range no longer has the heap property.
The first version of the function uses operator<

A max heap is a range of elements [

that has the following properties:
N = l  f

, f[(i  1) / 2]
does not compare less than f[i]
