perl -nlE"say 0+s/(.)(?!.*\1)//g"

Searches a string for a pattern, and if found, replaces that pattern with the replacement text and returns the number of substitutions made.
How does the number of substitutions made equate to the number of characters left after the substitutions?

Once (shame on you!)
Twice (shame on me!)
More often than I'd like to be
