    You can add a global variable, like count = 0, then incrementing it by 1 every time you call the function (like at the beginning of the function). Or, somewhat better, passing some counting variable, like count, as another argument, and set the default to 0. See this: http://codepad.org/WRPMlGvq

    Try to input the function into a other function. and you have def a(): counter+=1 def b(): actual function or make a class. and for each call of the instance the counter get +1. i hope it answered you question.
