Due to the degeneracy of the PyMOL selection language, there are many
Say we want 79 to 85 and 89 to 94 in chain A...
# the most concise way is=20
select name2, a/79:85+89:94/
# but alternatives include:
select name2, ( a/79:85/ or a/89:94/ )
select name2, ( chain a and (resi 79:85 or resi 89:94 ))
# hyphens (-) work just as well as colons (:) in the above...
select name2, a/79-85+89-94/
