      One more hint: when you call that function from a mapping and you want a
      default range of `%', try the following:

      cno <expr> <SID>% getcmdpos()==1 ? "%" : ""

      " remove trailing ^M
      no <script> <Leader>sm :<SID>%InFunc s/\r$//e<C-B>KeepView <C-E>
      ou <Leader>sm|sunm <Leader>sm
