Xav is on a distinguished road
Dear all,

I've recently changed from CFX/Fluent to OF and would like to do some problem specific post Processing.

I'm using OF v5 (sadly I must use it on Windows)

I want to extract a specific variable that is not part of the OF functionObjects at a number of probes in order to visualize its evolution over time at these locations.

Where do I define a variable that is plottable (e.g. over time)? is it also under "functions" in the controlDict?

An example would be super helpful!
