(defun count-regexp-hits (regexp)
  (interactive "sregexp: ")
  (let*((region (if mark-active
                    `(,(region-beginning) ,(region-end))
                  `(,(point-min) ,(point-max)) ))
        (start (car  region))
        (end   (cadr region)) )
    (count-matches regexp start end t) ))
