Is there any way to specify the data output / write directory? I assume this would be done in controlDict, but I haven't been able to find anything thta will do it. It would be nice if I could create a directory called "Results" or "Solution" or whatever and have all my timesteps, forces, etc. written there instead of into the case directory.

You can only specify a subdirectory.
See the wiki: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Op...objectRegistry
The output goes to the IOobject's path, which can is:
You give it the "instance" and (optionally) "local" when you create the IOobject. name is its name, and that becomes the filename.
instance can only be one of 5 things. See the wiki.
