Dear Prasenjit, 
   Thanks for your help. I've got it. But I don't know the meaning of the third  column in results file "case. proj".  Can you tell me these?
   Besides, in case.out file, I noticed atomic orbital is numbered. For example, d orbital is given by quantum number l=2 and m=1,2,3,4,5. You know, d orbitals are often written as dz2, dx2-y2,.....  Can you tell me atomic orbitals, such as d and p,  are arranged in what order?  
Best regards,
Yanling Li.
