But I guess there is a good reason for not doing it !? It dates 2012. check-copyright seems to be a good candidate for parallelizing. I tested that with the 'parallel' tool (with some modifications of course). A speedup only when certain tools / shell are/is available would be fine, IMO. But that's just a random idea, I am absolutely not enough into gnulib nor shell programming. Regards, Tim
