replacing matlab's extractHOGFeatures with another HOG function

I downloaded some matlab code that I wish to run, but I do not have a function used by the code, called  "extractHOGFeatures" that is being used in this piece of code:

[hog_14x14, vis14x14] = extractHOGFeatures(img,'CellSize',[14 14]);

So I decided to find another code to replace it, and found this function to do so:

function H=HOG(Im)
nwin_x=3;%set here the number of HOG windows per bound box
nwin_y=3;
B=9;%set here the number of histogram bins
[L,C]=size(Im); % L num of lines ; C num of columns
H=zeros(nwin_x*nwin_y*B,1); % column vector with zeros
m=sqrt(L/2);
if C==1 % if num of columns==1
   Im=im_recover(Im,m,2*m);%verify the size of image, e.g. 25x50
   L=2*m;
   C=m;
end
Im=double(Im);
step_x=floor(C/(nwin_x+1));
step_y=floor(L/(nwin_y+1));
cont=0;
hx = [-1,0,1];
hy = -hx';
grad_xr = imfilter(double(Im),hx);
grad_yu = imfilter(double(Im),hy);
angles=atan2(grad_yu,grad_xr);
magnit=((grad_yu.^2)+(grad_xr.^2)).^.5;
for n=0:nwin_y-1
   for m=0:nwin_x-1
      cont=cont+1;
      angles2=angles(n*step_y+1:(n+2)*step_y,m*step_x+1:(m+2)*step_x);
      magnit2=magnit(n*step_y+1:(n+2)*step_y,m*step_x+1:(m+2)*step_x);
      v_angles=angles2(:);    
      v_magnit=magnit2(:);
      K=max(size(v_angles));
      %assembling the histogram with 9 bins (range of 20 degrees per bin)
      bin=0;
      H2=zeros(B,1);
      for ang_lim=-pi+2*pi/B:2*pi/B:pi
         bin=bin+1;
         for k=1:K
             if v_angles(k)<ang_lim
                v_angles(k)=100;
                H2(bin)=H2(bin)+v_magnit(k);
             end
         end
      end

     H2=H2/(norm(H2)+0.01);        
     H((cont-1)*B+1:cont*B,1)=H2;
   end
end

My doubt is if I can use this function to replace extractHogFeatures with it. My first thought is that no, because extractHOGFeatures is being used to return a matrix as far as I understand, while this function only returns a single dimension vector (H). Also, I am not sure with which values I could replace the parameters that are being passed to extractHOGFeatures. Should I replace:

'CellSize',[14 14]

with:

nwin_x and nwin_y?

Thanks for any help.
