Caution: As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested Texinfo source page into HTML format but there seems to be a problem converting the current Texinfo file perfectly into the HTML format so we display here only the Texinfo source itself. (may be since it is only an "include"-file as part of a "main"-Texinfo file). Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted Texinfo source code. A member file download can also be achieved by clicking within a package contents listing on the according byte size field.

env_parallel - export environment to GNU parallel

@node SYNOPSIS
@chapter SYNOPSIS

@strong{env_parallel} [--record-env|--session|--end-session]
  [options for GNU Parallel]

@node DESCRIPTION
@chapter DESCRIPTION

@strong{env_parallel} is a shell function that exports the current
environment to GNU @strong{parallel}.

If the shell function is not loaded, a dummy script will be run
instead that explains how to install the function.

@strong{env_parallel} is 100 ms slower at startup than pure GNU
@strong{parallel}, and takes up to 30% longer to start a job (typically 15 ms).

Due to the problem with environment space (see below) the recommended
usage is either:

@verbatim
  # Do --record-env into $PARALLEL_IGNORED_NAMES
  env_parallel --session

  # Define whatever you want to use
  alias myalias=echo
  myvar=it
  myfunc() { myalias $1 $myvar works.; }

  # env_parallel will not export names in $PARALLEL_IGNORED_NAMES
  env_parallel -S localhost myfunc ::: Yay,
@end verbatim

Or:

@verbatim
  # Record the "clean" environment (this only needs to be run once)
  env_parallel --record-env

  # Optionally edit ~/.parallel/ignored_vars (only needed once)

  # Define whatever you want to use
  alias myalias=echo
  myvar=it
  myfunc() { myalias $1 $myvar works.; }

  # Use --env _ to only transfer the names not in the "empty" environment
  env_parallel --env _ -S localhost myfunc ::: Yay,
@end verbatim

In @strong{csh} @strong{--session} is not supported:

@verbatim
  # Record the "clean" environment (this only needs to be run once)
  env_parallel --record-env

  # Optionally edit ~/.parallel/ignored_vars (only needed once)

  # Define whatever you want to use
  alias myalias 'echo \!* $myvar works.'
  set myvar=it

  # Use --env _ to only transfer the names not in the "empty" environment
  env_parallel --env _ -S localhost myalias ::: Yay,
@end verbatim

@end menu

@node Environment space
@section Environment space

By default @strong{env_parallel} will export all environment variables,
arrays, aliases, functions and shell options (see details for the
individual shells below).

But this only works if the size of the current environment is smaller
than the maximal length of a command and smaller than half of the max
if running remotely. E.g. The max size of Bash's command is 128 KB, so
@strong{env_parallel} will fail if '@strong{set | wc -c}' is bigger than 128
KB. Technically the limit is in execve(1) which IPC::open3 uses.

Bash completion functions are well-known for taking up well over 128
KB of environment space and the primary reason for causing
@strong{env_parallel} to fail.

Instead you can use @strong{--env} to specify which variables, arrays,
aliases and functions to export as this will only export those with
the given name. Or follow the recommended usage in shown in
DESCRIPTION.

@node OPTIONS
@chapter OPTIONS

Same as GNU @strong{parallel} in addition to these:

@table @asis
@item @strong{--end-session}
@anchor{@strong{--end-session}}

Undo last @strong{--session}

@item @strong{--record-env}
@anchor{@strong{--record-env}}

Record all names currently defined to be ignored every time running
@strong{env_parallel} in the future.

@item @strong{--session}
@anchor{@strong{--session}}

Ignore all names currently defined. Aliases, variables, arrays, and
functions currently defined will not be transferred.

But names defined @emph{after} running @strong{parallel --session} @emph{will} be
transferred.

This is only valid in the running shell, and can be undone with
@strong{parallel --end-session}.

You can run multiple @strong{--session} inside each other:

@verbatim
  env_parallel --session
  var=not
  # var is transferred
  env_parallel -Slocalhost 'echo var is $var' ::: ignored
  env_parallel --session
  # var is not transferred
  env_parallel -Slocalhost 'echo var is $var' ::: ignored
  env_parallel --end-session
  # var is transferred again
  env_parallel -Slocalhost 'echo var is $var' ::: ignored
@end verbatim
