Parallel processing from the shell

The parallel project allows for simple parallel and distributed processing from shell scripts. In particular, the programs accept lines of shell code on the standard input and run these lines in parallel. The parallelism can be either on the local machine or on a cluster, if a small amount of time is taken to set up SSH. Additionally, the distributed version includes a degree of fault tolerance.

      Minor documentation fix.
      There was an error in the escaping in the man page, causing the examples to come out incorrectly. It's been fixed, but the change is too small to warrant a version bump.
