Just for clarity, I changed your x a bit - in your version, the 0-1 and 1-0
change occurred the same number of times.
If all your values are 0 and 1, this will work:
> x <- c(0,1,0,1,0,0,0,1,1,1)
> table(diff(x))
-1 0 1
2 4 3
> sum(diff(x) == 1)
[1] 3
If other values can occur, it would need some tweaking.
