ali.m.1 is on a distinguished road

I'm wondering if it's possible to write a lookup table from a velocity field? I've started by using OFstream, but I'm coming across quite a few problems already. To complicate matters, I also want to be able to write this file every timestep (and delete the old one).

The kinematicLookupTableDict needs the following:

    Particle injection sources read from look-up table. Each row corresponds to
    an injection site.

        (x y z) (u v w) d rho mDot   // injector 1
        (x y z) (u v w) d rho mDot   // injector 2
        (x y z) (u v w) d rho mDot   // injector N
It seems it should be possible, but just wanted to check if anyone had done it before, or there was an easier method?

Thanks for your time, Ali
