gnu parallel

last updated: Mar 19, 2024

An example usage: cat urls.txt | parallel --gnu "wget -nc -P images {}"

That's from my command history, but it's probably better to use curl which is built in to curl. I have no idea why I used the --gnu option, and the manual doesn't clarify its usage. Probably I just copy-pasted from stack overflow.

I have usually found gnu parallel pretty painful to use, and try to avoid it.
