      That doesn't look right; don't you mean

      :command! -range=% Aaa <line1>,<line2>call Func()

      If you "start from visual block", when you type the : vim puts

      :'<,'>

      on the "command-line", and then you type the command name

      :'<,'>Aaa

      if Func is defined with the range attribute, line(".") and a:firstline will be set to that of '<. If you remove the "'<,'>", you've just specified the whole file, so line(".") and a:firstline will be 1.

      You can still get at '< and '> in your function, they will be line("'<") and line("'>"), though that will give the last visual mode used, even if there's no visual mode when the command is invoked.
