n = histogram(x, c)

[n, ctr] = histogram(x)

[n, ctr] = histogram(x, m)

Legacy Name: hist


Counts the number of values that fall in specified intervals. If you do not request an output, LabVIEW returns a histogram plot.



Name Description
x Specifies the data values. x is a matrix.
c Specifies the centers of all intervals in which you want to divide the range of x. c is a matrix. The elements in c must be in ascending order.
m Specifies the number of equally spaced intervals in which to divide the range of x. m is a positive integer. The default is 10.


Name Description
n Returns the number of elements that fall in each interval. n is an array of integers.

The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.

Supported in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine Yes (if you request output)
Supported on RT targets Yes (if you request output)
Suitable for bounded execution times on RT Not characterized


[N, C] = histogram(rand(1, 100), 20)

[N, C] = histogram(rand(1, 100))

N = histogram(rand(1, 100), 0:0.1:1)
