You want "help @sym/limit".  (limit is method of the class sym).

ok, I had tried help sym/limit (which works in matlab) and help symbolic/limit, thinking maybe it had to match the package name. and edit sym/limit worked to open it so I could actually find the help text.  didn't realize the @ was necessary. Is there a way for that help error to be more, er, helpful? I consider myself not-quite-a-complete-neophyte in navigating octave and it obviously stumped me.
