Dear Hulei Yu,
Yes, Z2Pack can be used to calculate mirror Chern numbers. The way this
is done is by calculating overlap matrices only for the +i or -i
eigenstates, instead of all bands. This is currently implemented for
Quantum Espresso 5.3 in the 'pw2z2pack' routine. You can find it here:
along with an example for SnTe.
