jobqueue reads jobs from a file or standard input. Each line in the input presents a single job to be executed.
jobqueue was used for parallel computation research to evaluate automated task distributing algorithms at TUT with the DCS task mapper tool.
jobqueue -n4 jobfileexecutes commands from file 'jobfile' by keeping 4 commands running in parallel. jobqueue completes after all commands have been executed.
You can get the lastest development version of jobqueue with git:

jobqueue is distributed under public domain. You may use it as you wish.
