You are not supposed to select a partition, select is just for disks
(and loop devices).

Parted allowing you to execute select on an extended partition number
is the problem...

But one can successfully execute 'select' followed by 'print' on
primary partitions. eg., I took the image of a swap partition using dd
and Parted recognizes it as a 'file' device having a 'loop'
