[Pw_forum] How to generate the pseudopotential using virtual.x

Dear Junjie,

I am not sure I really get your point.
I understand you would like to add virtual-crystal capabilities to  
PWscf itself?
If I remember correctly, it was a deliberate choice to leave PC  
capabilities out of PWscf itself, and to delegate them to the prior  
generation of an appropriate pseudopotential, which may require some  
interpolation or other numerical tweaking. There is nothing magic  
about it. If the code complains, it is only that the data you have  
generated are different from what the code expects. By "different" I  
do not mean "wrong", I mean "in the wrong format", "wrong in number",  
or the like ...
