Compmake is a non-obtrusive module that provides Makefile-like facilities (including parallel processing) for batch Python applications.
See http://andreacensi.github.com/compmake/ for extensive documentation.
Quick intro: To use compmake, you have to minimally modify your Python program, such that it can understand the processing layout and the opportunities for parallelization.
Here's a demo example.py to try out:
You would run this program using:
$ compmake example -c make # runs serially $ compmake example -c parmake # runs in parallel
