4.4 Files in parallel version and serial version

Files in the parallel version and serial version are fully compatible, and can be exchanged freely. Notably it is possible to restart from an existing WAVECAR and/or CHGCAR file even if the number of nodes in the parallel version has changed.

But also mind, that the WAVECAR file is a binary file, and therefore it can be transfered only between machines with a similar binary floating point format (for instance IEEE standard format).
