I am trying to use the 'readGVF' function but it seems to be inexistent.

Can you say what package you expect that function to be in? There is no indication that I can see that the function is part of cnvGSA, and a search of the entire BioC subversion using Itoshi Nikaido's awesome search page doesn't come up with that function name in any BioC package.

I got the function from this website:
Moreover, I found 'readGVF' function in cnvGSA vignette (page6).

Right. And that page shows that they are using R-3.0.2, which is old. The last version of cnvGSA that had that function is three releases ago. If you want to use the version of that package that has that function, you could install R-3.0.2 and then use biocLite() to install. Or you could use the current version - I assume the updated vignette is also updated vis a vis reading in data, so I would start there.
