What does the periodic option in build surface routines such as build.fcc111()?

The explanation for the tag in the documentation is unclear.

If true, sets boundary conditions and cell constantly with the corresponding bulk structure.

fcc111(...., bulk=True) returns the same structure as bulk=False except the vacuum and boundary conditions are set such that the material is an FCC crystal.

The string in the documentation was supposed to be “consistently” not constantly. I’ll make sure it’s corrected.
