  • Any evaluations still underway after k results have been received are aborted.
  • If the result from evaluating one of the is $Failed, then it is ignored.
  • If no results other than $Failed are obtained, ParallelTry returns $Failed.
  • ParallelTry[f,{arg1,arg2,}] allocates evaluations of the to different kernels and processors, starting with .
  • If there are more than kernels, then some of the will not be tried unless earlier ones return $Failed.
  • ParallelTry takes the same DistributedContexts option as ParallelTable.
