Echelon Form

Given a matrix (say with integer coefficients), is there a way to find its reduced Echelon form? (I looked through the manual but couldn't find this specific routine). To fixed conventions, the reduced Echelon form is the usual Gaussian elimination with the condition that given a pivot position all entries above it are zero. For example:

[1 1]
[0 1]

is not Echelon form while

[1 0]
[0 1]

is. Cheers,
