 +$count(<​string>​ <​text>​)
 +The <​string>​ argument is a [[what is a word|dword]] which is unlike most
 +other functions.
 +This function counts how many times <​string>​ appears in the text specified
 +by <​text>,​ possibly overlapping.
 +The uses for a function like this are unlimited. ​ One may be to count how
 +many times a person'​s nick appears in a public message, for logging
 +number of times <​string>​ is found in <​text>​
 +$count(. one.two.three) ​         returns 2
 +$count(zz zzzz)                  returns 3
