README

This program could has two names: [[ [[[
[[ ]] is sequential (not required)
[[[ ]]] is parallel
both of them are also used as command quote.

SEE Makefile

if [[ and/or [[[ is used by shell builtin command, use `brackets` as argv[0]

sh script equivalent for simple case:
	#!/bin/sh
	unset pids
	cmds="1 2 3 4"
	for cmd in $cmds; do
	echo ${cmd} &
	pids="$pids $!"
	done
	pwait $pids

	(but what if process terminates and another process with same pid is executed before pwait?
	though pid is not likely to collide.)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
