Sorry for the long delay... The above is a bug due to an oversight,
normally isinteger() should be replaced by a macro which is configured
according to what is suitable for the present octave version.

I had no running Octave-4.2 for testing when I released the package,
only later versions...

A fix is pushed, but there is no new release yet. What you could do is
to download the package code (mercurial has to be installed):

hg clone parallel

, cd into directory 'parallel' and give the shell command 'make dist'
there. Than cd into directory target, where you should find the
tarball 'parallel-4.0.0.tar.gz', which you can install from within
Octave with 'pkg install parallel-4.0.0.tar.gz'.
