A Number-type property. Returns the number of keys in the dictionary (by their nature all keys are discrete so there is not potential of duplication in the count). If:

$MyDictionary = dictionary("cat:animal; dog:animal; rock: mineral"); 

$MyNumber = $MyDictionary.count; 

MyNumber is now 3.

Dictionary.count and Dictionary.size are interchangeable. Use which ever seems more intuitive.
