Default controlDict 'forces' function: multiple output files?

lordvon is on a distinguished road
Is there a way to output multiple force files created by the 'forces' function used in the controlDict? I would like to evaluate all of the forces acting on a case configuration as well as forces on specific patches (to determine shaft power, for example).
Many thanks.

EDIT: Found a solution. Copy and paste the 'forces' function definition in the controlDict file and rename it 'forces2' or something, so that now there is code for both 'forces' and 'forces2'. An additional forces file will be created a folder entitled 'forces2'.
