Consider the lists {1,1,0,1} and {1,1,0,0},{1,0,1,0,1}.
The first sequence (1101) switches 2 times (#2digit~#3digit,
#3digit~#4digit}, the second (1100) 1 time, the third 10101 4 times.

I have the following problem.
Consider a list of binary digits. Which is the easiest way to count the
number of switches of the list (using Mathematica commands)?
