Regarding rational canonical form/frobenius form of matrices over finite fields


The sagemath documentation on linear algebra describes a function frobenius which computes the frobenius normal form (rational canonical form) of a matrix over integers. The same command doesnt work on matrices over finite fields. Can someone help me to find the frobenius form of matrices over finite fields

Sample code :

A = matrix(GF(2),[[1,0,0],[0,0,1],[1,1,0]])


This code gives the error

'sage.matrix.matrix_mod2_dense.Matrix_mod2_dense' object has no attribute 'frobenius'
