-parallel: parallel (run command lines simultaneously in parallel)
-parallel: Build and execute command lines from standard input in parallel.
+parallel: parallell (Executes jobs in parallel)
+parallel: GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel using one
+parallel: or more computers. A job can be a single command or a small script
+parallel: that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical
+parallel: input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of
+parallel: URLs, or a list of tables. A job can also be a command that reads
+parallel: from a pipe. GNU parallel can then split the input and pipe it into
+parallel: commands in parallel.
