In another article, I described a replacement for Python's built-in map() function that could take advantage of multi-processing systems. That one was based on the standard Unix fork(). Since then, I've written another based on Parallel Python that is much simpler and lets other, better-tested code do all the hard…

I think that Python should use multi-processing and/or multi-threading to take advantage of as many opportunities for parallel execution as possible. To this end, I've written a drop-in replacement for map() that runs across as many processes as requested. It should be otherwise identical in every way the built-in…
