Yes, but the original post (quite a while ago) was looking for a way
to determine how many times h occurred in singles, doubles, triples,
etc. Your script counts how many heads and tails there are total.
There were some non-RegEx solutions offered, but they were long.
RegEx shortens the length of the solution quite a bit. I can't
determine whether the RegEx solution is faster because I am using an
older version of Rev which has slower RegEx.
