Numpy's `count(~)` method returns a Numpy array containing the number of occurrences of the given substring in each of the input strings.

# Parameters

1. `a` | `array-like`

The source array of strings.

2. `sub` | `string`

The substring to count.

3. `start`link | `int` | `optional`

The starting index from which to count.

4. `end`link | `int` | `optional`

The ending index until which to count.

# Return value

A Numpy array of integers that represent the counts of the substrings in the input strings.

# Examples

## Simple count

``` np.char.count(["aacd", "abc"], "a") array([2, 1]) ```

## Specifying a starting index

``` np.char.count(["aacd", "abc"], "a", start=1) array([1, 0]) ```

Since we are starting from index 1, we do not include the `a` at index 0.

## Specifying an ending index

``` np.char.count(["aacd", "abc"], "a", end=1) array([1, 1]) ```

Since we ignore all characters including and after index 1, we only get a count of 1 for each.
