Can a weapon be a holy symbol?

So I’m being part of a DnD campaign soon, and I’m making a tempest cleric that worships Thor. Since Thor’s weapon is a Warhammmer, and I also use a Warhammer, could the hammer count as a holy symbol or would there need to be some form of engraving/emblem on it for it to count?

[ Politics ] Open Question : Trump Slams NYC Black Lives Matter Mural As Symbol Of Hate?

NYC is cutting Police [budget] by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the [Mayor] is going to paint a big, expensive yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury avenue,” the President objected. “Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates [and] disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street,” he continued. “Spend this money fighting crime instead!” That is one thing Black Lives Matter and de Blasio have in common – their hatred of the police.

What is the lore behind why soul coins have the symbol of Bhaal on them?

I am struggling to find an image of both sides of a Soul Coin (Baator’s currency), but everywhere I’ve looked, I’ve only found only one side bearing a letter and the other side depicting a skull with blood droplets flying around it.

But it is the symbol of Bhaal. Why does it appear on Baator’s currency?

Am I correct about how soul coins look? What images appear on the sides of a soul coin, and why?

Set: in part assignment is not a symbol

This is probably a basic question but I am new to Mathematica, so please help me out here.

I have the following piece of code:

lmax = 2; arrlen = lmax + 1; xarr[x_] = Array[x^# &, arrlen, 0]; parr[p_] = Array[p^# &, arrlen, 0]; arr[x_, p_] = Join[xarr[x], parr[p]]; mboot[x_, p_] := Outer[NonCommutativeMultiply, arr[x, p], arr[x, p]] 

Now, I want to set a few particular elements of mboot[x,p] to 0. But when I try, for example:


I get an error saying Set: mboot[x,p] in the part assignment is not a symbol.

It would be great if someone could help me figure out what is going wrong and how I can fix it.

relocation error: symbol SSL_trace version OPENSSL_1_1_0 not defined in file with link time reference

I compiled and using openssl1.1.1d using command ./config -d enable-ssl-trace. when i use and and run my the apps. it show me this relocation error. i checked and found SSL_trace is it OPENSSL_1_1_0 global feature. May I know how can I make it defined in file

How is a symbol “given meaning by a family of operations indexed by symbols”?

Practical Foundation of Programming Languages by Harper says:

Chapter 31 Symbols

A symbol is an atomic datum with no internal structure. Whereas a variable is given meaning by substitution, a symbol is given meaning by a family of operations indexed by symbols. A symbol is just a name, or index, for a family of operations.

Many different interpretations may be given to symbols according to the operations we choose to consider, giving rise to concepts such as fluid binding, dynamic classification, mutable storage, and communication channels.

A type is associated to each symbol whose interpretation depends on the particular application. For example, in the case of mutable storage, the type of a symbol constrains the contents of the cell named by that symbol to values of that type.

What does “a symbol is given meaning by a family of operations indexed by symbols” mean? Is “a symbol” given meaning by a family of operations not one of the “symbols” indexing the family of operations? What is the relation between “a symbol” and “symbols”?

What does “a symbol is just a name, or index, for a family of operations” mean? Does it mean “a symbol names or indexes a family of operations”?

When a symbol is used in each of the following example cases (which I hope you could consider as many as possible, in particular the first three cases):

  • “represent a variable in symbolic representations of equations or programs” (see the quote below),
  • “represent a word in the representation of natural language sentences” (see the quote below),
  • represent an assignable (?) in mutable storage,
  • represent something (something similar to a variable?) in fluid binding,
  • represent a class (?) in dynamic classification,
  • represent something (?) in communication channels,

how does the above quote about a symbol applies, specifically:

  • is the symbol given meaning by what family of operations indexed by symbols?
  • is the symbol just a name, or index, for what family of operations?


The Scheme Programming Language, 4th Edition, by Dybvig, says

Section 2.2. Simple Expressions

Symbols and variables in Scheme are similar to symbols and variables in mathematical expressions and equations. When we evaluate the mathematical expression 1 – x for some value of x, we think of x as a variable. On the other hand, when we consider the algebraic equation x 2 – 1 = (x – 1)(x + 1), we think of x as a symbol (in fact, we think of the whole equation symbolically).

While symbols are commonly used to represent variables in symbolic representations of equations or programs, symbols may also be used, for example, as words in the representation of natural language sentences.
