[QE-users] How is the wave function and charge density saved?

There are several subroutines involved in writing and reading wavefunctions
and charge density. It's not a straightforward reading (to put it mildly).
See routine "pw_write_binaries" in PW/src/pw_restart_new.f90 for
wavefunctions, "write_rhog" in Modules/io_base.f90 for the charge density.
Note that in parallel execution,
* there is a "local" and a "global" ordering of G-vectors, related by array
  G_loc(i) = G_glob(ig_l2g(i))
* there is a local ordering of k+G-vectors, related by array igk:
  (k+G)_loc(i) = k+G_loc(igk(i))
* there is a global ordering of k+G-vectors, related to the local ordering
as follows:
  (k+G)_loc(i) = (k+G)_glob(igk_l2g_kdip(i)) = k+G_glob(igk_l2g(i))
