Thank you for responding.
Yes, sort of symbolic manipulation, but not so complicated.
Anyway I managed to code one myself, which is far from complete 
for handling a rational function as attached.
But it is sufficient for my present purpose (mainly integrating 
transfer functions to evaluate noise in an electronic circuit.)

Well, GNU Octave knows IEEE arithmetic, and you can easily write a
script or function file that returns the values of a rational function
at a given point...

But if what you want is to symbolically manipulate rational functions,
then Octave probably isn't the right tool for the job. Try Maxima or
Axiom for that.

There are hacks to accomplish this sort of behaviour, but it sounds
like you want symbolic manipulations. Octave is not made for this.
