Given a parallel task:

def uptime():

bytewise output is seen:

[] out: . 15:292:26 1up 54,7 d1a.y8s0,, 116.:7447

If the --linewise or -P options are specified this condition can't be reproduced.

From the 1.3.3 documentation:

"Fabric’s option for linewise output is automatically enabled whenever parallelism is active"

Apologies if this is working as intended (i.e. enabled only when Fabric is invoked with the -P option or env.parallel), but it wasn't clear to me.


Hm, no, you're right that the intent and language were both supposed to include the decorator, so probably an oversight on our end. Thanks for the tip!
