Thanks, that does the trick! Thanks for the fast response.

As for testing NetBSD, unfortunately NetBSD doesn't provide an official VirtualBox image.

If an unofficial image is okay with you, I've uploaded an appliance you should be able to import (File > Import) into VirtualBox:

It is a basic installation of NetBSD 6.0.1 i386. You can log in with user 'test' and password 'test'. That user can use `sudo`. Root's password is also 'test'. You can log in via the console or SSH to the host-only interface (you can see its IP with `ifconfig`).

The method NetBSD users usually use to install GNU Parallel is from pkgsrc with `pkgin install parallel`.

Alternatively, you can install NetBSD into VirtualBox yourself with this installation image:


Thanks again, and please feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

I adapted it slightly. Can you test it out?

Also can you point me to a VirtualBox image of NetBSD so that I can test GNU Parallel on NetBSD before each release?

Running parallel on NetBSD emits a Perl warning at the moment:

This is because there is no no_of_cpus_netbsd or no_of_cores_netbsd functions.

I've implemented both (and added calls to them to the appropriate places). See <https://github.com/wolverian/parallel>, commit 15ac5db76e3172f97f3eb43611f71044820e97fa.

Commit web diff: https://github.com/wolverian/parallel/commit/15ac5db76e3172f97f3eb43611f71044820e97fa

After that commit, this is the output:

Do you think this is something you could merge in? I'd be glad to rework the patch if required.
