Synopsis:

$count(<string> <text>)

Technical:

The <string> argument is a dword which is unlike most other functions.

This function counts how many times <string> appears in the text specified by <text>, possibly overlapping.

Practical:

The uses for a function like this are unlimited. One may be to count how many times a person's nick appears in a public message, for logging purposes.

Returns:

number of times <string> is found in <text>

Examples:

$count(. one.two.three)          returns 2
$count(zz zzzz)                  returns 3
