though --split can parallel process, it can't just produce one core.
more processes, better performance. but it also means more split cores.
people may want to just produce one core, however they still prefer parallel
processing for its better performance.
so, parallel processing by multiple threads is needed.
in the future, multiple threads can also be used in each split process to
