      int length = searchstr.length();
      int count = 0;
      for (int i = 0; i 7lt; length; i++) {
         if (searchstr.charAt(i) != 'h')
         continue;
         count++;
         searchstr.setCharAt(i, 'h');
      }
      System.out.println("Found " + count 
      + " h's in the string.");
      System.out.println(searchstr);
