How to Add same Index Array Elements in Octave

I've generated elements w(i,j) of an array, most of which are zeros. Some of the elements have the same index j and I'd like to add them up and show each j with its corresponding summed up value. I tried v = sum(w) and it did show the summed up values but as elements of a large matrix, with most elements being zero. Is there a different way to accomplish that task?

This is one possible solution, although I was hoping that there might be a way to avoid looping:

for j = 1:arr_rows
if sum(w)'(j) != 0
[j, sum(w)'(j)]
endif
endfor

This is the best solution I could come up with so far. There are memory problems for large arrays. I may address these problems later.
