This function returns the Number of times that the literal 'string' appears in the String. If $MyString contains the word "aardvark", then:

$MyNumber = $MyString.countOccurrencesOf("a"); returns 3

$MyNumber = $MyString.countOccurrencesOf("aa"); returns 1

$MyNumber = $MyString.countOccurrencesOf("r"); returns 2

string is literal and must not be a regular expression. If the latter is needed use String.contains() or String.icontains().
