Default dynamicMeshDict update during runniing

Hi all,

I would like to link OpenFOAM with an external tool calculating "on the fly" the motion of a vehicle simulated with an overset grid.

What I tried is to edit the dynamicMeshDict file during run. In the log, it says the file is re-read:

From function virtual bool Foam::regIOobject::readIfModified()
in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 281
Re-reading object dynamicMeshDict from file "/home/[...]/constant/dynamicMeshDict"

but it has no effect on the simulation, unless we stop it and re-launch the solver...

Any way to allow OF overset grid motion to be driven by an external tool "on the fly" ?
