There is a Python script available to check if your input file is outdated. For example, for XGC1, from the
module load gcc python check_inputs.py xgc1 ~/input
If your input file needs to be updated, then the script will provide instructions via standard output.
Equivalently, for XGCa:
module load gcc python check_inputs.py xgca ~/input
