What do you mean by "string"?
foo = "abc abc cde abc ijk abc cde abc"
"foo" is one "string". If you want substrings, specify what kind of substrings
you mean. All occurences of "abc", for example.

Do you mean something like "count and return all occurences of the substring
'abc' in foo"? Looks like you should use the re module.
