script type
" Format (i.e., gqq) a block of lines above/below the current line from the
" line matching <beg_pattern> to the line matching <end_pattern>; intervening
" lines of the block should match <in_pattern>, if given.

" Format block (do a 'gq' format) on a C-style statement (i.e., from cursor's
" line to line ending with ';'):
" map gqs :call FormatBlock('', ';$', '')<CR>

Primarily used as a "helper" function to FormatComment ( vimscript #886 )
install details
I put this in my autoload directory (~/vim/autoload), so the function is automagically loaded as needed via an autocommand:

autocmd FuncUndefined * exe 'runtime autoload/' . expand('<afile>') . '.vim'
