Hi folks

I would expect -djob-count=2 to launch 2 processes which I should see in my system monitor, but I see only one lilypond instance. I'm missing something or what?

I have a 2 core CPU (and 4 threads).

By the way, when I build a project of mine which uses Meson/Ninja, I see 4 lilypond processes active at the same time. This happens because Meson automatically detects the number of CPU and parallelize itself accordingly:

OK, forget it: I was compiling a single file.
I see now that -djob-count makes sense when compiling multiple files:

$ lilypond -djob-count=4 *.ly
GNU LilyPond 2.19.82
