The manual is unfortunately unclear, and this is a reflection of the
fact that this section is slighly outdated. Unfortunately also, the
LAT input code has not kept pace with other reorganizations of the
geometry input. It is, however, still possible to use it by using the


LAT has to come after INT, which is otherwise normally not needed.
Note also (again for historical reasons) you should specify only the
symmetry-unique lattice points; the others are generated

One day this will be improved, but no promises, I'm afraid.
