Shared libraries are common on any UNIX (including Linux) platform. It
is close to the concept DLL in Windows.

   Why we should use the options as "-lgsl" and "-lgslcblas"? And
what's the mechanism?

-lgsl links in the libgsl which contains general GSL functions.
-lgslcblas links in libgslcblas which is GSL's interface to BLAS.
