Can I use octave as algebraic manipulator?
For example, can I make with octave the following:

a x^2+b x+c=0

and octave responses a solution as a function of a,b c?

octave-forge ( has a symbolic
package which is a wrapper around GiNaC.  It
preserves symbols through mathematical operations.
Later you can substitute values for the symbols.

It looks to have some numeric solvers, but I don't
see anything to solve for x symbolically.
