Comments in INCAR

#1 Post by samuel.mathews » Tue Nov 13, 2018 3:35 pm

Hello.
I am wondering how I can make comments in the INCAR file, and more precisely to what extent?
I am aware that I can have

Code: Select all

ALGO=F #comment here
But, can I have headings and space by code out more?

Code: Select all

## Parallelization Tags
NPAR = 8 # comment here

## Functional Tags
GGA = RE # comment here
I tried some variations of this but i received errors about not being able to read ISTART and other tags.

Thank you!
Sam

Hello,
headings (as you have posted) are considered as comments in the INCAR.
