@fifonames = tmpfifo1..tmpfifo{%}
# Open so we have filehandles before they are removed
open >> tmpfifo1..tmpfifo{%}
push @fifohandles, tmpfifohandles

code from parcat on
--rm -1 tmpfifostdout1..tmpfifostdout{%} -2 tmpfifostderr1..tmpfifostderr{%}

pop @fifohandle

do not close filehandle

close @fifohandles

while(select(pipes)) {
read pipe.
Print full lines

This could possibly include a buffer (mbuffer -t) with compression (lzop before, lzop -dc after).

parallel --pipe --line-buffer prg | lzop | mbuffer -t | lzop -dc |

Should this be default for --line-buffer?
