I had only skimmed through the tutorial and couldn't find it.

I took your reply to mean it is possible and I should therefore invest more time into it.

I did find what I was looking for after a more detailed pass.

Just wondering if there is an option to divide things up in blocks of lines?

For example, if there is a file with a million lines, is there a way to run
4 processes, with 250k lines input each?

I have a large file I want to process in parallel, but the command has high
startup overhead.
Before I answer that, please tell me whether you have:

* watched the intro videos (
* walked through the tutorial (man parallel_tutorial)
* read the examples in the man page (LESS=+/EXAMPLE: man parallel)
