LVTOT = [logical]
Default: LVTOT = .FALSE. 

Description: Determines whether the total local potential (in eV) is written to the LOCPOT file.

where is the ionic potential, the second term is the Hartree potential, and is the (semi-)local exchange-correlation potential.

If LVTOT=.TRUE., the is written to the LOCPOT file and the POT file. The POT file additionally contains the augmentation part.

Warning: LVHAR=T changes the content of the LOCPOT file.

WRT_POTENTIAL also gives access to the total local potential and offers more options.
