Hi all,

I'm looking at run-time post-processing. There are "probe" and "sampledSet" options as function objects for picking out values (e.g., U or p) for a particular node or group of nodes.

But I don't know what the difference between the two options is. For example, if I choose a sampledSet to be only 1 point, is that the same as a probe?
