For a transient problem, I would like to use the solution of previous simulation as initialization. That works, aparat from that I have the time from the previous solution. How can I resest the time step to zero?

Here is the solution:
In the TUI type with brackets:

(rpsetvar 'flow-time 0)
query current time step

(rpsetvar 'flow-time)

Both values should be reset:
(rpsetvar 'flow-time 0)
(rpsetvar 'time-step 0)

(their value is stored in .dat file)

To query their values:
(rpgetvar 'flow-time)
(rpgetvar 'time-step)
