Polite hint for the OP:
You're probably not aware that quite often there are patches available supplying functionality that's more or less frequently asked for in the bug tracker and Octave support channels. It can really help you to search first - just a suggestion :-)
Just type "octave histcounts" in DuckDuckGo (or if you want, Google) and you'll see a few.

See for example patch #8801 for two different implementations.
I've had the original one in that patch report (that dates from 2016) in my Windows builds for some years now. AFAIR the only real issue in that patch is a failing BIST (that I only occasionally noted); the author mentioned he would fix it but we've not heard back yet.

I'm in doubt if this had better be closed as a duplicate of patch #8801.

Taking a quick look at the documentation for the Matlab histcounts function, it appears to have many possible calling sequences.  Which do you use?  Also, we are all volunteers here.  Can you help to provide an independent implementation as a replacement (i.e., your work, not based in any way on the code found in Matlab, whether should you have access to it or not)?
