Minimum image convention for non-orthorhombic unit cells

I am trying to take into account periodic boundary conditions for non-orthorhombic unit cells. I have the atomic coordinates for a monoclinic super cell with the following lattice vectors output by ...

Recalculate atom positions to account for periodic boundary conditions

I have the output of a simulation done using Periodic boundary conditions (PBC), however, the atom positions have been resolved, i.e. there are atoms outside the PBC-box now. Is there a software/...
