VBScript array_count_values function

A VBScript equivalent of PHP’s array_count_values

Function array_count_values(mAry)

    Dim obj
    set obj = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
    if Not isArray(mAry) and Not isObject(mAry) Then
        Set array_count_values = obj
        Exit Function
    End If

    Dim j,k
    Dim intCounter

    For Each j In mAry

        intCounter = 0

        For Each k In mAry
            If j = k Then intCounter = intCounter + 1

        If Not obj.Exists(j) Then obj.Add j, intCounter


    Set array_count_values = obj

End Function
