Function counting script

That's ok, I failed to document that myself. In truth, it would 
truthfully be inpossible to find run-time memory leaks like that using a 
script because of a potential unknown variable in a for loop which is 
derived from an argument or return from another function.

I will try to add code for detecting contant for loops at one point.

Also, the script is designed to be edited and whatever function you want 
to look for inserted into the code.
