I tried to open an existing file hw3.m in octave environment with edit hw3.m. It opens an empty file with gedit which is the editor I use. I checked if the file is there with what and yes it is there. How can I open that file?

that means either the directory is wrong , or there is no file like that and gedit opens a new empty file with that name. –  Sushantp606 Nov 28 '13 at 8:10
