Re: [lammps-users] Read xyz file as crystal structure

Dear lammps users,

I find this a very pertinent question.

Could anyone explain if there is a command to read atomic coordinates from a xyz file?

Same holds for pdb/sdf/zmatrix and other formats.

By digging I have found this possibility, but I could not make this work:

Thank you.

why not look in the manual?
