The @parallel examples all show f(x).
Is it possible to use f(x,y,z) where x is the list to be iterated over?
Are there any examples of @parallel that do not use list?

Can you post a sample code to explain what you are trying to do? The most natural solution would be to pass an array.

Indeed, this is missing from the documentation, and I found it confusing. With some fiddling, I learned that @parallel will pass tuples as arguments:

def func(n,color='red'):
    return [n^2,color]

r = func(L)

The output is as expected:

for s in r:
    print "func(%s) = %s"%(s[0][0][0],s[1])

func((2,)) = [4, 'red']
func((4, 'blue')) = [16, 'blue']
func((5,)) = [25, 'red']
func((6, 'green')) = [36, 'green']
func((7,)) = [49, 'red']

UPDATE: Ok, I guess I have time to at least create the ticket ;) This is now ticket 11462!

So open a ticket for this doc patch! :) You will become the new @parallel expert :)

ha! Yes I'd like to, but I don't quite have time for it right now -- maybe in a month or so . . .
