I want to have two sets of page numbers (P and p) in my document. The first one (P) is global, the second one (p) resets to 1 at some predefined points.
So, the document will look like,
Text. In this page the page number (p, second one) is reset.
To get the total page count a label in the last page or the lastpage package (http://www.ctan.org/pkg/lastpage) can help me. And that is not the subject of this question.
The problem is with the second counter. I can use chappg (http://www.ctan.org/pkg/chappg) with noauto option. But I loose the global page counter P. Moreover, the (sub) total number of pages in that group has to be manually set.
I understand that if I write a set of macros with a new counter (my@local@page), reset it at my predefined points, label the last page in a group (label names will have to be distinct), perhaps I can achieve my goal. But that requires at least half a day. Which I do not have at this moment.
I was wondering if you can suggest something readily usable.
