Modified from the documentation:

a = RandomReal[NormalDistribution[0, 1], 200];
Histogram[a]

By default, Histogram[] will automatically decide bin widths for you;
this particular example gave bin widths of 1/2. Now use functions such
as:

BinCounts[a, 1/2]
BinLists[a, 1/2]

...which hopefully gets you close to what you wanted. (I'm guessing
this will be much easier in version 8...)
