comment pdfpages / pdfbook for odd sizes paper
Thank you, that works. In my case my printer driver allows for duplexing by flipping on the short side, so the extra work for reversing alternate pages isn't needed. I'll add an answer with that, but I'll accept this one, as it is more general. Thanks.

comment pdfpages / pdfbook for odd sizes paper
Thank you for the considerable detail, I appreciate it. It's not quite what I need, though. I've added a diagram to the question to clarify. Your solution still gives me the logical pages in the opposite orientation to the physical page. If the physical page is portrait, i need the logical pages to be side by side (and also portrait). Yours gives above each other and landscape. I seem to be able to generate most combinations except the one I want.

My next step if there was no easy answer was to write a little script to do the signature-aware reordering, and then use nup as you say, so thank you, I think this looks like it will be the way forward, but I'll see if the other answer gets a one-shot result before accepting.

comment How do I skip a match when using Ctrl+D for multiple selections in Sublime Text 2?
@Qwerty Now it is true that sometimes you don't need to skip, just use Ctrl+D correctly (and the OP might benefit from having it pointed out that in this specific example is one of them). But in many cases you do need to skip, so answering the question of how to skip by saying, effectively "don't" is unhelpful. As Romain says, if you want to make sure there's an answer on SO to the more general question, then create one, rather than editing this.

comment How do I skip a match when using Ctrl+D for multiple selections in Sublime Text 2?
@Qwerty - I understand what you're saying. OP describes what s/he is trying to do (select matching variables), then asks a question about how to do something (skip some Ctrl+D matches) that will achieve their goal (and it will achieve their goal). You're saying that, the OP doesn't need to skip to select her/his variables, s/he can put the cursor before the first occurrence and Ctrl+D will do the right thing. Correct. But that's not the question s/he asked (perhaps it is the question s/he should have asked). S/he asked how to skip, so Ctrl+K then Ctrl+D is correct. [more...]

The edit by Queerty of the title missed the point of the question. This makes it clearer, and makes it clear why the top rated answer is so good.

comment How do I skip a match when using Ctrl+D for multiple selections in Sublime Text 2?
Your edit of the title here @Qwerty complete misses the point of the question and makes it much less clear. The question is how to skip a Ctrl+D match, the new question title isn't even a question.

I changed my code's function names when I wrote the Qn - there was one place the original names remained. This edit fixes that.

comment Haskell Expression Equivalents
Thank you, this was the tip off I needed to understand. The other bit that I was missing is that <- is not just an assignment, it strips the Monad and returns the underlying type, so x <- y then foo x is not equivalent to foo y. I appreciate the comprehensive answer, Rein.
