That is correct. When you say "nothing happens", do you mean that the line of code executes, but no figure is produced? If so, try

    clf;
    X = randn(1000,1);
    hist(X,22);

clf RESET gives this error though?

??? Error using ==> clo at 32
Unknown command option.

Error in ==> clf at 80
clo(fig, extra{:});
