```Thanks. Okay, let me make sure I understand that, so all the data shown in the file are potentials at nth position and I have to calculate the corresponding real space coordinate myself. Right?
And I've actually got another relevant question for my situation: is it possible to convert fildv files made during ph.x calculation into human readable files like pw2casino does to the wavefunction in pw.x pw2casino <input> output precess?

Thanks.

For example in the main part of the data file (shown as below), if the first three columns are the coordinates in the real r space with the unit in alat, then what are the left two columns recording? Which column is the potential? How does the datafile represent the Vscf(r) function in real space?
