I think Dominic's point is reasonable. I filed a feature request for corrcoef at https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?47824

What about adding something like the following to your Octave setup:

function r = corrcoef (x, y)
    if nargin == 1
        r = corr (x);
        r = corr (x, y);

I would like to use Octave as a Matlab replacement but the fact that you have removed corrcoef makes this difficult as I wish to switch between Matlab at work and Octave at home on the same files.

The corrcoef function has been removed from Octave 4.0, which makes the stepwisefit function to fail.  Trivial changeset attached.
