I've been searching many moons for this exact functionality! I'm very
glad to run across this, but as a fairly new emacser, I'm not sure what
to do with this code. I copied it into my init.el, marked it and ran
'eval-region', but what do I call to use the functions? If I can get this
working, I will be using it every day.

Thank you!
