While attempting to wrap hist() in my own custom function (for formatting purposes), I notice that a call like

> hist(x, prob=NULL)

produces the output:

   Error in if (freq) x$counts else { : argument is of length zero

Switching to use freq does not produce an error, even when freq = NULL.

It appears that hist() is checking for the condition

   !missing(prob)

but needs to add a check for a NULL value

   && !is.null(prob)
