Some very basic examples

PT1/low-pass filter step response

Code: Creating a transfer function and plotting its response
 T1=0.4;               # time constant
 P=tf([1], [T1 1])     # create transfer function model
 step(P,2)             # plot step response

 #add some common markers like the tangent line at the origin, which crosses lim(n->inf) f(t) at t=T1
 hold on
 plot ([0 T1],  [0 1],"g")
 plot ([T1 T1],  [0 1],"k")
 plot ([0 T1],  [1-1/e 1-1/e],"m")
 hold off
