Hi Tiny Core Experts,

Apparently, quite a while back in 3.x days, GNU Parallel was in the repository:

http://tinycorelinux.net/3.x/tcz/parallel.tcz.info
http://tinycorelinux.net/3.x/tcz/index_nojs.html
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/3.x/tcz/src/parallel/

I am wondering if anybody has a current TCZ for this wonderful GNU application?
https://www.gnu.org/software/parallel/

thx
Billy

Hi Juanito, you are truly a hero member.  I was so surprised and happy to see that you brought back the GNU Parallel tool from the archives.

We all have our favorite command line tools, for sure, but I have to say that GNU Parallel is one of the best productivity tools ever!  If you have any processing tasks that run sequentially, today, do consider parallel to run them simultaneously.  I'll be using it to test hard disk drives, the long scans can take 1.5 hrs per terabyte so running parallel can save days.

Again, thank you, Juanito!

thx
Billy

GNU Parallel - 64-bit version running on TC (we do have the 32-bit)

Hi Juanito,

Last year you graciously provided an update to the GNU Parallel utility:

GNU Parallel - Does anybody have a recent 32-bit version running on TC?
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,21128.msg132073.html#msg132073

It has performed splendidly, but we have since moved over to TC Corepure64. I am hoping now you might have another go at it and create a 64-bit version for the TC9.0 repository?

Either way, many thanks again for all your previous help.

thx
Billy

I have cross posted this request to where in belongs in "Tiny Core Linux » Tiny Core Extensions » TCE Talk » Extension requests"  Sorry I missed that board earlier.
