Dear Zhiping,

ZY> In PWscf, one can get out the  1=total potential V_bare+V_H + V_xc
ZY> !                                           2=local ionic potential

Isn't "local ionic potential" the "external potential" you are looking

pw.x wavefunction files are binary files in an internal format. They 
correspond to array "evc" in the code.
To project them, look for projwfc.x, INPUT_PROJWFC, and discussions on the 
forum like:

Hope this helps.
