Overwriting output time

I am new to OpenFoam and am using SIMPLE to solve the Stokes equations - grad p = nu grad^2 U. Since they are a time independent component of a multistage solver I want to prevent the time value from incrementing during the SIMPLE iteration (simple.loop). Any suggestions? I looked at SimpleControl.C but I could not figure out where the runtime.timeName() is being incremented. This program is very useful but its way too clever for me.

If I understand you correctly, then you are developing something with this type of structure:
while OuterTimeLoop O1. Some operations while InnerTimeLoop I1. Produce steady state solution end O2. Some more operations based on steady state solution. end
The only thing you will need to be aware of, is that there might be the need of a duplicate of variables and some corresponding mapper, such that they carry the correct time information depending on the use of the variables, but I do not have an answer for that.
Please note that I do not use the Friend-feature, so do not be offended, if I do not accept a request.
