psi4.driver.scf_helper(name, post_scf=True, **kwargs)[source]

Function serving as helper to SCF, choosing whether to cast up or just run SCF with a standard guess. This preserves previous SCF options set by other procedures (e.g., SAPT output file types for SCF). Most run_* functions should call this function, common exceptions being when multireference SCF is needed or when restarting from converged SCF.
