Is there any easy way to select *a range of chains* in complex models like
the ribosome in Chimera at the command line?  I haven't been able to work
out the syntax for this type of complex selection at the command line.  For
example, what is the syntax of the command to select chains 1G through 1Z
and chains 10 through 19 in PDB file 5DOY [without explicitly listing them
one by one]?  I may be missing something simple, and I have not been able
to get it to work or find an example in documentation.

I have been able to do this in Chimera X but not the current version of
