The parallel module provides tools aimed at parallel computing. At this point
all parallel solutions use the
fork system call and are supported on limited
platforms, notably excluding Windows. On unsupported platforms parallel features
will disable and a warning is printed.
nprocsparallel processes by forking
It is up to the user to prepare shared memory and/or locks for inter-process communication. As a safety measure nested forks are blocked by setting the global
procidvariable; all secondary forks will be silently ignored.
