```Dear Liping,

thanks.
donot you notice that the data in bands.x output are  in some wrong order ?
while for data in nscf calculation output, the eigenvalues  are  sorted
ascending .
my confusion is about  this difference . as far as i know, the bands data
should
be arranged in ascending or descending styles.

Bests
