Here is my contribute to help you (although I don't know much C++ and
not a GSL expert). I also read your other posts here.

I read your C++ program and looks fine. But I have some questions:
- - is the C++ type string fully compatible with char * ?
- - are you sure about the path of the file? (would C++ throw an exception
if fopen fail?) I would go for a file in the same directory of the
executable. You file path seems too long, I would check that.

A basic library is the stdio.h, do you know if you have Linux
Programmer's Manual installed, that you can do:
$ man stdio
$ man fopen
That way you have the help for C language essential functions.

I recommend to study the gsl_matrix_fscanf (f, m) function, I'm sure
that you will understand how it is working.

Good luck.
