Follow-up Comment #5, bug #30504 (project findutils):

That's the nature of the bug/comment.

The -P option by it self is not usable.

You don't need to do any work if you don't want to do it.  I already have
working code as the modification is trivial.

I'm simple suggesting that the -P when used in absence of any other argument
length directives means to use processes to process the arguments.  I don't
see the complexity in that argument.

As I mentioned before.  What other interpretation would you
place on the use of a single -P switch with no others?

xargs -0 -P xxyz

You keep speaking about list.  what list are you talking about?
I looked for a list before posting the bug here and don't recall finding one.
 bugs-xargs, bugs-findutils, didnt' seem to exist as I recall, but I may have
tried some wrong address.
