changing dcd output file DURING run?

is it possible to change the output dcd file name during a NAMD run?
Say I have a "minimization" for 1000 -> min.dcd
and then a "run" for 100 steps -> equ.dcd

We tried changing the "DCDfile" variable, but this is only possible
PRIOR to any simulation.
Also, using "catdcd" after the NAMD run I would like to avoid - if possible.

Thank you very much,
