A more complex/flexible example. More like what I actually use.




  CNiceLevel=$(nice)
    declare -a JobArray
    function PushAdvancedCmd {
        local IFS=$'\v'
        JobArray+=("${*}")
    }
    function PushSimpleCmd {
        PushAdvancedCmd  WrapJob ${CNiceLevel} "address@hidden"
    }
    function PushNiceCmd {
        PushAdvancedCmd  WrapJob "address@hidden"
    }
    function UnpackCmd {
        local IFS=$'\v'
        set -o noglob
        _RETURN=( .${1}. )  
        set +o noglob
        _RETURN[0]="${_RETURN[0]#.}"
        local -i address@hidden
        _RETURN[${le}]="${_RETURN[${le}]%.}"
    }
    function runJobParrell {
        local mjobCnt=${1} && shift
        jcnt=0
        function WrapJob {
            [ ${1} -le ${CNiceLevel} ] || renice -n ${1}
            local Buffer=$("${@:2}")
            echo "${Buffer}"
            kill -s USR2 $$
        }
        function JobFinised {
            jcnt=$((${jcnt}-1))
        }
        trap JobFinised USR2
        while [ $# -gt 0 ] ; do
            while [ ${jcnt} -lt ${mjobCnt} ]; do
                jcnt=$((${jcnt}+1))
                UnpackCmd "${1}"
                "address@hidden" &
                shift
        done
        sleep 1
        done
    }



    function testProcess {
        echo "${*}"
        sleep 1
    }
    #  So standard variable args can be handled in 2 ways 1
    #  encode them as such
    PushSimpleCmd testProcess "jiji#" dfds dfds dsfsd
    PushSimpleCmd testProcess "jiji#" dfds dfds
    PushNiceCmd 20 testProcess "jiji#" dfds
    PushSimpleCmd testProcess "jiji#"
    PushSimpleCmd testProcess "jiji#" "*" s
    # more complex things just wrap them in a function and call it
    function DoComplexMagicStuff1 {
        echo "address@hidden" >&2
    }
    # Or more normally just do a hybrid of both.
    PushSimpleCmd DoComplexMagicStuff1 "jiji#"

    #
   
    runJobParrell 1 "address@hidden"



Note there is another level of complexity where I start a JobQueue
Process and issues it commands using a fifo.
