= About GNU Parallel =

GNU Parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel. A job is
typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for
each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files,
a list of hosts, a list of users, or a list of tables.

If you use xargs today you will find GNU Parallel very easy to use. If
you write loops in shell, you will find GNU Parallel may be able to
replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running jobs in
parallel. If you use ppss or pexec you will find GNU Parallel will
often make the command easier to read.

GNU Parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as
you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it
possible to use output from GNU Parallel as input for other programs.
