Using orient in data file

Hello
I have a somewhat elementary question.
Is there any way I could use the equivalent of orient command in the read_data file?
I’m sorry if this has been answered before but I could not find it.
Thanks,

No you cannot.

But nothing keeps you from writing a little tool, that modifies/generates the coordinates as needed and writes them out again.

I.e. a data file just contains a list of atom coords.
There is not concept of a “lattice” or its spacing
or orientation in a data file.
