Could you replicate a spell book using minor conjuration?

The Minor Conjuration ability given to Conjuration Wizards allows you to replicate non-magical object you have seen, so could you theoretically create your own spellbook, or even the spellbook of a powerful wizard, and prepare spells of of it? To bypass the “You would have to remember the whole book” solution, assume this wizard took the keen mind feat.

Need an opinionated C++ book that focuses on 17 [on hold]

I’m looking for a book (or even web-based course or interactive tutorial but ideally book) that teaches C++ 17. My normal approach of “learn by doing and Google” isn’t working, it’s obvious I need a more structured, formal approach for this. Specifically, a book that:

  • Teaches C++ assuming v17, and doesn’t worry about giving the reader a historical journey on how to do something in older versions, nor any knowledge on how to work on a “legacy” project. I really just want 17 and forward, mostly to minimize the considerable learning curve already inherent to C++, and maximize productivity and safety. (Relatively speaking of course, knowing that none of those attributes are C++’s strong points in absolute modern terms compared to other languages).
  • Is highly opinionated. That minimally focuses only on what the author considers “best practices” solutions to some of the more near-universal problems that system utility programs tend to solve over and over, rather than teaching every possible approach to a problem. (Whether his/her ideas subjectively are “best-practice” or not isn’t actually the point.) C++ is pretty overwhelming with possible approaches. I may only ever use 1% of its capabilities and language features, and is all I have the bandwidth or even capacity to learn & use. (Unfortunately the exact 1% I need isn’t knowable now, or I’d iterate them!) If I learn one sub-optimal approach among 50 possible ones, the negative consequences are minimal.
    • I understand that there are languages with “opinionated” built-into them, such as Go. But I’m no longer in the “language choice” phase.
  • Is known within the community to at least not be a horribly-written cash-grab. There seems to be so many of those. Sand traps everywhere!

There are so many books. Tyranny of choice. I’ve spent hours scouring Amazon, web search, and the StackExchange site family, but books seem nonexistent, that:

  • Don’t assume baseline proficiency in previous versions of C++
  • Aren’t just a “tour” of new features to 17
  • Do focus on teaching the excellent new features of 17, to the exclusion of historical idioms that do similar things. (I know the overlap of new:old functionality is rarely if ever 1:1.)

So I suppose the real question is not what exact book meets those needs, but at least comes close and is known to not be awful. I also understand that there isn’t one ideal approach/pattern/idiom/toolkit to every or even any one problem; again, I’m OK with only learning a highly suboptimal subset.

This answer is great (if too exhaustive), but is just for general C++, and also doesn’t focus on “opinionated”.


This is the end of the question, but if additional info helps, here’s my relevant background:

  • Long ago I programmed in C, both hobby and in a small capacity professionally. But I’ve forgotten nearly everything about it, particularly the arguably arcane syntax, symbols, and idioms. (Less so general concepts, like raw memory pointers, stack/heap, etc. Those are mostly still with me. As are general programming and OO concepts.) I find the C++ symbol-based syntax especially inscrutable and confusing. C++ 17 seems to make it a little worse (or better?), which is why I want to avoid learning unnecessary “legacy” syntax. (But my use of negative adjectives shouldn’t be interpreted as an unwillingness to learn the symbols and syntax – quite the opposite!)
  • Although faint praise, I’m arguably in an advanced tier of professional proficiency in legacy Visual Basic / VBA, Bash scripting, and CMD scripting. Advanced SQL. Can and have gotten the job done in C#, Python, Java, and JavaScript. Have also used Perl, Pascal, and Fortran, which is mostly included to give you an idea of how old I am. (Not punch-card old though.)
  • I haven’t programmed professionally in many years, but am responsible for understanding full-stack nodejs-based web applications. But on a near-daily basis I “program” in at least Bash, in as structured and idiomatic way as the language allows, including solving problems it was never meant to address. (But it is after all touring-complete!)
  • I think best in terms of classes (favoring interfaces over inheritance). I still find myself struggling now and then with Javascript’s object/prototype model.
  • I understand and appreciate that duck-typing and generics are the future, and can deal with that, but strong explicit typing is my comfort food. (As are private members and immutability.)
  • I understand lambdas, anonymous functions, and the like – when I pause to think about it – but still often struggle with real-world application, and almost never use them. While I don’t need to learn them better, it would be nice, it seems like I could benefit from using them.

Current/evolving environment:

  • Currently g++ 7.4.0, but can switch to any version or flavor necessary.
  • Mostly Linux CLI, with occasional ports to Windows CLI and MacOS/Darwin CLI.
  • Currently favoring Visual Studio Code with popular C++ extensions. (Am comfy with Sublime too.)
  • CMake (struggling!)
  • No FLOSS C++ code yet but will use public Git repositories in future.

There are many reasons for my choice of moving to C++. But being the best tool for the problems I’m currently solving is not one of them. Let’s just say it’s not the most rational or necessarily best choice, but an exhaustively researched and well-thought-out choice nonetheless. (This is not a “what’s the best language to solve problem XYZ” question, that decision has already been made.) The long and short of it is, I’ve judged it to possibly be the least-evil, single-language solution to the next 5-10 years worth of problems to solve on the horizon. But more importantly, I’ve always just wanted to “be” reasonably proficient at it, as my own private badge of honor.

Thanks in advance!

Can a Tomelock swap the Book of Ancient Secrets invocation with itself upon level-up, and gain more than two ritual spells that way?

Eldritch Invocations (PHB, p. 107):

…Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the invocations you know and replace it with another invocation that you could learn at that level.

Book of Ancient Secrets (BoAS) (PHB, p. 110):

Prerequisite: Pact of the Tome

You can now inscribe magical rituals in your Book of Shadows. Choose two 1st-level spells that have the ritual tag from any class’s spell list (the two needn’t be from the same list). The spells appear in the book and don’t count against the number of spells you know. With your Book of Shadows in hand, you can cast the chosen spells as rituals. You can’t cast the spells except as rituals, unless you’ve learned them by some other means. You can also cast a warlock spell you know as a ritual if it has the ritual tag.

On your adventures, you can add other ritual spells to your Book of Shadows. When you find such a spell, you can add it to the book if the spell’s level is equal to or less than half your warlock level (rounded up) and if you can spare the time to transcribe the spell. For each level of the spell, the transcription process takes 2 hours and costs 50 gp for the rare inks needed to inscribe it.

Assuming that the DM rules that the Rituals learned by BoAS don’t vanish upon dismissing (old) BoAS:

Is it possible by RAW to gain two new ritual spells with every warlock level by switching the BoAS invocation with the BoAS invocation upon level-up?

Bonus:

Assuming that the DM rules that the spells learned from BoAS vanish:

Can a warlock copy a spell from his Book of Shadows to his Book of Shadows and preserve the Spells in this way to get more ritual spells by switching BoAS with BoAS on level-up?

Mac Book Pro Touch Bar won’t respond

My touch bar is actually reflecting changes depending on the software context, and showing the right buttons. However, it won’t respond to my input.

I’ve tried to reset it via terminal and all potential solutions I’ve found on the Internet, but unfortunately none of them worked.

Could you please help me out to make it operational again?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Adds book information to an array in a loop

I have to make a program that asks for a books information, the title, the genre, and the page length, 3 times and collects it into an array but I’m not 100% sure of what I’m doing wrong. It runs but it won’t let me ask the user for the title 3 times and I’m not sure where I’m going wrong with the array. The top code is the class that takes the business class and the bottom code is the business class.
