I need to find the number of occurance of '&' in this string.

'&HLQV&VER&SYS..POST20.TEMP.LTRQ.CLUSTER'

Is there any command available or can any one help me in doing it.

Code:

/* REXX */
thevar = '&HLQV&VER&SYS..POST20.TEMP.LTRQ.CLUSTER'
cnt = 0
Do n = 1 To Length(thevar)
  If Substr(thevar,n,1) = '&' Then cnt = cnt + 1
End
Say cnt

thevar = Translate(thevar,' ','&')
Say Words(thevar)
Exit
