I've had this problem too, and worked around it by duplicating
the first and last elements of the data, and by adding the end
points to the bin centers.

If data is your histogram data, and binBounds is an array
of the histogram bin boundaries:

plotData=[data(0),data,data(sizeData-1)]  ;duplicate first and last

FOR i=0,sizeBinBounds-2 DO binCenters(i)=binBounds(i)+binBounds(i+1))/2.

;add highest and lowest bin boundaries to the bin center array


I'll trust the maxim that the best way to find out that one's method
is needlessly complicated is to post it to comp.lang.idl-pvwave.
