[ale] printing odd and even pages separately

lp print options for odd and even (leaving out destination and file for


lp -o page-set=odd

lp -o page-set=even


Works fine on text docs - haven't printed a PDF in forever so it
probably requires more than that.

You can even tell lpr to print only the even or odd pages of a document
(don't recall the options off of the top of my head) by specifying the
page numbers and you can do that with a simple $() substitution to fill
in the page numbers...
